DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which prevents email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is issued on the basis of 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 Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with altered content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will boost your online safety substantially and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be bogus may either be tagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-activated for all domains that are hosted in a shared hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you will not have to do anything yourself to enable it. The sole requirement is that the particular domain should be hosted in a hosting account on our end using our MX and NS resource records, so that the e-mails will go through our email servers. The private key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the Domain Name System automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will allow you to send credible messages, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, whereas unsolicited third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service come with DomainKeys Identified Mail activated by default, so if you choose a semi-dedicated server plan and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email validation system will be set up automatically – a private key on our email servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the Domain Name System. As the protection is set up for a certain domain name, all email addresses created using it will have a signature, so you will not need to worry that the email messages that you send may not reach their target email address or that someone may fake any of your email addresses and try to spam/scam people. This may be extremely essential in case you use email communication in your business, since your partners and/or customers will be able to distinguish real messages from false ones.
