DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which obstructs email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each and every email sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that is available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will enhance your online safety tremendously and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send email messages, 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 counterfeit may either be marked as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared website hosting packages that we’re offering without needing to do anything in particular, because the required records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. In case you send out regular email messages to clients or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited individual will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you’ve composed a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is included by default with any domain name that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is actually the public encryption key that verifies if a particular email message is legitimate or not. Such a record is created the moment a brand new domain is registered in an account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target audience and you will not have to worry about unsolicited individuals using your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something pretty important when you use email messages to get in touch with your business allies.
