DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is issued based on a private key that is available on the outgoing mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be identified by mail service providers. This technology will enhance your web safety dramatically and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fake may either be marked as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-activated for all domain names that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, so you won’t need to do anything on your end to enable it. The sole requirement is that the given domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our NS and MX resource records, so that the emails will go through our email servers. The private encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS system automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this feature. The DomainKeys Identified Mail authentication system will enable you to send trustworthy e-mails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for example, your emails will always reach their target audience, whereas unauthorized third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated service come with DomainKeys Identified Mail 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 validation system will be created automatically – a private key on our email servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global DNS database. Since the protection is set up for a particular domain, all addresses created using it will have a signature, so you will not have to worry that the emails that you send may not be delivered to their destination address or that somebody may spoof any of your addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be extremely essential in case you use electronic communication in your business, as your partners and/or clients will be able to distinguish authentic emails from bogus ones.
