DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to every message sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that is available on the sending server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will strengthen your online safety significantly and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fake may either be marked as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
When you get any of the Linux shared hosting packages that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled by default for any domain name that you register under your account, so you won’t need to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the emails related to this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private encryption key will be issued immediately on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All addresses created with this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will know that they are authentic, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited persons to spoof your addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is offered by default with any domain name that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is actually the public cryptographic key that verifies if a particular message is legitimate or not. This record is created as soon as a domain is added to a semi-dedicated server account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your messages will always reach their target audience and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited parties spoofing your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is essential when you use email messages to reach your business collaborators.
