DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that’s available on the SMTP mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This approach will increase your worldwide web security substantially and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
If you purchase one of the Linux shared packages that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated by default for any domain that you register under your shared account, so you won’t have to create any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private cryptographic key will be generated right away on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All email addresses set up using this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will be sure that they are genuine, because the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to spoof your addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality comes by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource 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 encryption key that verifies if a particular email is legitimate or not. This record is created the moment a new domain is added to a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our email 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 unauthorized people spoofing your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something rather important when you use emails to touch base with your business collaborators.
