DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to every email message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This method will increase your worldwide web safety significantly and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be counterfeit may either be marked as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is activated by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you will not need to do anything yourself to enable it. The only requirement is that the particular domain should be hosted in a 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 encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the DNS database automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this feature. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will allow you to send out trustable messages, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for example, your emails will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited 3rd parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is included by default with any domain that is 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 managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is in fact the public encryption key that confirms if a particular email message is legitimate or not. Such a record is created the moment a brand new domain 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 email servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target viewers and you won’t need to worry about unauthorized people spoofing your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something very important if you use emails to contact your business partners.
