DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding a digital signature to each email message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private key that is available on the outgoing mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This technology will boost your web security dramatically and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be phony may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to handle such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
When you get any of the shared hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you add to your account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private encryption key will be issued instantaneously on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All addresses created using this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will know that the messages are legitimate, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unauthorized individuals to forge your e-mail addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All needed DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to buy a semi-dedicated package, you will not need to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain should use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by us and in case this requirement is matched, a private key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be sent to the DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create with the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any address. Both you and your partners or clients can take advantage of this functionality, as it will guarantee a much higher level of safety for your email correspondence.
