DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound email server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This method will boost your web security markedly and you will be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be bogus may either be tagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared website hosting plans that we’re offering without needing to do anything specific, because the obligatory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send periodic email messages to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have composed a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with DomainKeys Identified Mail enabled by default, so in case you select a semi-dedicated server package and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email authentication system will be created automatically – a private cryptographic key on our mail servers for the digital signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the DNS database. Since the DKIM protection is set up for a specific domain, all email addresses created with it will have a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the emails that you send out may not reach their target address or that somebody may spoof any of your email addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be extremely essential when you use e-communication in your business, as your associates and/or clients will be able to distinguish genuine messages from counterfeit ones.
