DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each message sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that is available on the SMTP server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will heighten your online security substantially and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is genuine. When you send out emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each website hosting plans that we are offering without the need to do anything in particular, since the necessary records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain uses our name server records, a private key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send regular email messages to customers or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve composed a given email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans come with DomainKeys Identified Mail enabled by default, so in case you choose a semi-dedicated server package and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be set up automatically – a private encryption key on our mail servers for the digital signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global Domain Name System. As the protection is set up for a specific domain, all addresses created under it will carry a signature, so you will not have to worry that the emails that you send out may not be delivered to their target address or that somebody may forge any of your addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be quite essential when you rely on e-communication in your business, since your partners and/or clients will be able to distinguish authentic messages from phony ones.
