DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching a digital signature to every email sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that is available on the outbound email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will strengthen your web security dramatically and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be phony may either be marked as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every hosting plans that we are offering without having to do anything specific, because the needed records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be created and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send out periodic messages to customers or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a certain message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is included by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our platform. 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 certain email is genuine or not. Such a record is set up when a brand-new domain is registered in an account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target readers and you will not need to worry about unauthorized individuals spoofing your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is essential when you use email messages to contact your business associates.
