DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to every email sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that is available on the SMTP server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This method will strengthen your web safety greatly and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is legitimate. When you send out emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be forged may either be marked as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting
If you obtain one of the shared web hosting services that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you add to your shared web hosting account, so you will not have to create any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource 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 immediately on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All email addresses set up using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that they are authentic, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited persons to forge your addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is included by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is actually the public key that verifies if a given email is genuine or not. Such a record is created the moment a new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target audience and you will not need to worry about unauthorized people forging your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important in case you use email messages to communicate with your business associates.
