DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each and every message sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that is available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with changed content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will strengthen your worldwide web safety considerably and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is genuine. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be fraudulent may either be marked as such or may never show up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-activated for all domains that are hosted in a shared website hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you won’t need to do anything yourself to turn it on. The sole condition is that the given domain name should be hosted in an account on our platform using our MX and NS resource records, so that the emails will go through our mail servers. The private key will be created 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 activate this functionality. The DKIM validation system will permit you to send out trustable e-mails, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target audience, while unsolicited third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with DKIM activated by default, so in case you choose a semi-dedicated server package and you add a domain using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email validation system will be created automatically – a private encryption key on our email servers for the digital signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the DNS system. Since the protection is set up for a given domain, all addresses created with it will have a signature, so you will not need to worry that the emails that you send may not reach their target email address or that someone may spoof any of your addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be really essential in case you use email communication in your business, since your partners and/or clients will be able to distinguish genuine messages from bogus ones.
