DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which hinders email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding an e-signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that is available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This technology will heighten your online safety considerably and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is activated by default for all domain names that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud servers, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to enable it. The sole condition is that the particular domain name should be hosted in a hosting account on our end using our MX and NS records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our email servers. The private key will be created on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes 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 activate this option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will permit you to send credible emails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target audience, whereas unsolicited third parties will not 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 name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that verifies if a particular email is genuine or not. Such a record is created as soon as a new domain is added to an account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target readers and you won’t need to worry about unsolicited parties spoofing your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is essential when you use emails to touch base with your business partners.
