DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the sending server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web security markedly and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
If you purchase one of the cloud website hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated by default for any domain name that you add to your hosting account, so you won’t need to create any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private cryptographic key will be issued instantly on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All email addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that the messages are genuine, as the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unsolicited persons to spoof your e-mail addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is included by default with any domain name that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is actually the public encryption key that confirms if a particular message is legitimate or not. Such a record is set up as soon as a brand-new domain is added to a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target viewers and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited people forging your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something very important if you use emails to get in touch with your business associates.
