DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding a digital signature to every email message sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private cryptographic 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 Domain Name System. Thus, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This method will increase your online security significantly and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send out emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fake may either be tagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared web hosting that we offer without the need to do anything specific, because the mandatory records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain in question uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send regular messages to customers or business collaborators, they will always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have written a certain message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is offered by default with any domain name that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain 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 record to be set up, which is actually the public cryptographic key that confirms if a particular email message is legitimate or not. This record is set up once a new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target readers and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited people forging your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something very important in case you use emails to contact your business associates.
