DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private key that is available on the sending server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This approach will increase your online security noticeably and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., 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 appears to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting
If you purchase any of the web hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated as standard for any domain that you register under your web hosting account, so you will not have to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the email messages associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private cryptographic key will be created instantly on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All addresses created using this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will be sure that the messages are authentic, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality makes it impossible for unauthorized people to forge your e-mail addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All necessary DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you won’t have to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain must use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed by our company and if this precondition is met, a private encryption key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be published to the global DNS database by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any email address. Both you and your partners or clients can take advantage of this feature, since it will guarantee a much higher level of safety for your electronic communication.
