DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each message sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the SMTP mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This approach will heighten your online safety considerably and you will be sure that any email sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be forged may either be marked as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud hosting platform, so you will not need to do anything on your end to activate it. The only condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our end using our MX and NS resource records, so that the e-mails will go through our mail servers. The private key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which includes the public key, will be published to the global DNS database automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this feature. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will permit you to send credible emails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for instance, your emails will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited third parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is included by default with any domain name that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain 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 resource record to be created, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that verifies if a particular message is legitimate or not. Such a record is set up the moment a new domain name 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 make use of our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target audience and you won’t need to worry about unsolicited individuals spoofing your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is essential when you use emails to get in touch with your business allies.
