DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each email sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is created based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will increase your online safety significantly and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be fraudulent may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud hosting that we’re offering without doing anything in particular, because the compulsory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain name uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send out regular email messages to clients or business partners, they will always be received and no unauthorized party will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you have written a given message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is included by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain should 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 resource record to be created, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that confirms if a certain email is authentic or not. Such a record is set up once a domain name is registered in an account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target audience and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized people forging your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something pretty important in case you use email messages to contact your business partners.
