DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each email sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the sending server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will enhance your online safety tremendously and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be phony may either be marked as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each hosting that we offer without needing to do anything in particular, since the necessary records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send out regular messages to customers or business associates, they will always be received and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you have composed a certain email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature comes by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is actually the public key that confirms if a particular email is genuine or not. This record is created when a brand-new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target destination and you will not have to worry about unauthorized individuals spoofing your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something quite important if you use emails to get in touch with your business partners.
