DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is generated based on a private key that is available on the outgoing SMTP email 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 identified by email providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web safety noticeably and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be forged may either be flagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to handle such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
In case you host a domain name in a website hosting account from us, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be set up by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, on the condition that the domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers, whereas a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System automatically using the TXT record. Thus, you will not need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to take full advantage of all the benefits of this authentication system – your email messages will be delivered to any target destination without being denied and nobody will be able to send messages forging your addresses. The latter is pretty important if the essence of your Internet presence suggests sending periodic offers or newsletters via email to potential and current clients.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is included by default with any domain name that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is actually the public cryptographic key that verifies if a specific email message is legitimate or not. Such a record is created when a new domain is added to a semi-dedicated server account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target destination and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized persons spoofing your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something very important if you use emails to communicate with your business associates.
