DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each email message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will heighten your web security substantially and you will be sure that any email sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
In case you host a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be added by default. This will happen once you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, on the condition that the domain also uses our NS records. A private key will be created on our mail servers, while a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System automatically by using the TXT record. In this way, you will not need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of this validation system – your email messages will reach any target audience without being disallowed and nobody will be able to send out email messages faking your e-mail addresses. The latter is pretty important in case the type of your worldwide web presence involves sending periodic newsletters or offers via email to prospective and existing customers.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you opt for any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain name that you register through your new account without any manual setup, as our innovative cloud web hosting platform will create all the compulsory records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain name, as this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send out a new email, it will carry our system’s electronic signature. The number of spam emails continues to rise every year and quite frequently counterfeit addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or partners won’t need to worry about that.
