DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to every message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outbound mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will boost your web security greatly and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fraudulent may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared web hosting that we are offering without having to do anything specific, because the needed records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain name in question uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send out regular messages to clients or business collaborators, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your address and make it look like you’ve written a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is offered by default with any domain name that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. It 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 record to be set up, which is in fact the public encryption key that confirms if a specific message is legitimate or not. Such a record is set up as soon as a domain is registered in a semi-dedicated server account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target destination and you won’t need to worry about unauthorized parties using your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something pretty important in case you use email messages to communicate with your business collaborators.
