DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each email sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that is available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will increase your online safety significantly and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting
If you host a domain name in a shared 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 the moment you add the domain in the Control Panel’s Hosted Domains section, as long as it also uses our NS records. A private encryption key will be created on our email servers, whereas a public key will be sent to the global DNS system automatically by using the TXT resource record. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this authentication system – your email messages will be sent to any target audience without being denied and nobody will be able to send emails faking your email addresses. The latter is pretty important if the nature of your web presence suggests sending out regular newsletters or offers via email to prospective and current customers.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is included by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is actually the public encryption key that confirms if a certain email message is genuine or not. Such a record is set up once a brand new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated server account via 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 messages will always reach their target readers and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized people using your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something quite important when you use emails to reach your business associates.
