DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each and every email sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will enhance your worldwide web safety markedly and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is legitimate. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be fake may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to cope with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
If you host a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, all the mandatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be created by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, on the condition that your domain also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be created on our email servers, while a public key will be published to the global DNS database automatically using the TXT record. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of this email authentication system – your emails will be sent to any destination without being disallowed and no one will be able to send out messages faking your e-mail addresses. The latter is very important if the type of your worldwide web presence suggests sending periodic newsletters or offers via email to prospective and current clients.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is offered by default with any domain name that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed 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 specific email is legitimate or not. This record is set up when a domain name is added to an account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target readers and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited individuals spoofing your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is essential in case you use email messages to contact your business associates.
