DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will heighten your online safety enormously and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be phony may either be marked as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is enabled by default for all domain names that are hosted in a web hosting account on our cloud hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything yourself to activate it. The only requirement is that the particular domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our NS and MX records, so that the email messages will go through our email servers. The private key will be created on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DKIM email authentication system will allow you to send out credible e-mails, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target audience, while unsolicited 3rd parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality comes by default with any domain that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. It should 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 set up, which is actually the public cryptographic key that confirms if a given message is genuine or not. Such a record is set up once a brand-new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated server account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target audience and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized people using your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something very important if you use email messages to touch base with your business collaborators.
