DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which prevents email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each email message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that is available on the SMTP server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web security substantially and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be bogus may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting
You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared website hosting that we offer without having to do anything specific, as the needed records for using this email validation system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send regular emails to clients or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve written a certain message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is included by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is actually the public encryption key that confirms if a particular email is genuine or not. Such a record is set up when a brand new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated server account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target destination and you will not have to worry about unauthorized persons forging your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something very important if you use email messages to contact your business allies.
