DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding a digital signature to each message sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that’s available on the SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will boost your worldwide web safety tremendously and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be counterfeit may either be flagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is activated by default for all domain names that are hosted in a cloud website hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you will not need to do anything yourself to turn it on. The only condition is that the particular domain name should be hosted in a hosting account on our end using our NS and MX resource records, so that the e-mails will go through our email servers. The private cryptographic key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS database automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will enable you to send trustworthy e-mails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target destination, while unauthorized third parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option comes by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that verifies if a given message is genuine or not. Such a record is set up when a brand new domain is added to a semi-dedicated server account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target destination and you will not need to worry about unauthorized parties forging your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is essential if you use email messages to contact your business associates.
