DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to every message sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is generated based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP 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 edited content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This method will enhance your online security markedly and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-enabled for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud servers, so you will not need to do anything on your end to turn it on. The only requirement is that the particular domain should be hosted in an account on our platform using our NS and MX records, so that the e-mails 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 Domain Name System automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email validation system will enable you to send trustworthy e-mail messages, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for example, your emails will always reach their target destination, while unauthorized third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option comes by default with any domain name that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is actually the public cryptographic key that confirms if a particular email is legitimate or not. This record is set up the moment a new domain name is added to 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 audience and you will not need to worry about unsolicited individuals forging your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important in case you use emails to touch base with your business associates.
