DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web safety noticeably and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is an authentic one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fake may either be labeled as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting
When you obtain any of the cloud web hosting service that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled by default for any domain that you add to your website hosting account, so you will not have to set up any records or to activate 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 resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be created straight away on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All addresses set up with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, 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, since the DKIM option makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to spoof your e-mail addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option comes by default with any domain name that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is actually the public cryptographic key that verifies if a particular email is genuine or not. Such a record is set up when a brand-new domain is added to a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target readers and you will not have to worry about unsolicited people spoofing your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something very important if you use emails to contact your business associates.
