DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with edited content or a spoofed sender can be identified by mail service providers. This technology will heighten your web safety markedly and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fraudulent may either be flagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to handle such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting
When you purchase one of the Linux web hosting packages that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you register under your shared account, so you will not have to create any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be generated straight away on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All email addresses created using this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that they are legitimate, because the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to forge your addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option comes by default with any domain that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. 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 actually the public key that confirms if a particular message is authentic or not. This record is created as soon as a domain is added to an account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target viewers and you won’t need to worry about unsolicited individuals using your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something really important in case you use emails to get in touch with your business collaborators.
