DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each and every message sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will increase your web security substantially and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is authentic. 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 fake may either be flagged as such or may never reach the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain in a shared hosting account with our company, all the obligatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be created by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in , as long as the domain also uses our NS resource records. A private key will be created on our mail servers, while a public key will be added to the global DNS system automatically by using the TXT record. In this way, you will not need to do anything manually and you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of this validation system – your email messages will be delivered to any audience without being denied and no one will be able to send messages faking your email addresses. The latter is pretty important if the nature of your online presence involves sending out periodic offers or newsletters via email to prospective and existing clients.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is offered 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 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 particular email message is authentic or not. This record is created once a new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated account through 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 email messages will always reach their target readers and you will not need to worry about unsolicited persons spoofing your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something really important in case you use email messages to reach your business partners.
