DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each and every message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that’s available on the sending server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with edited content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web security tremendously and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting
When you purchase any of the shared website hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated as standard for any domain name that you register under your hosting account, so you will not 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 Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the emails related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private key will be issued momentarily on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All email addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that they are authentic, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to forge your e-mail addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers come with DKIM enabled by default, so in case you select a semi-dedicated hosting plan and you add a domain using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the email authentication system will be created automatically – a private 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 given domain name, all e-mail addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you will not need to worry that the email messages that you send out may not be delivered to their destination address or that somebody may forge any of your addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be really important in case you use email communication in your business, since your colleagues and/or customers will be able to distinguish real messages from spoofed ones.
