DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which hinders email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each email message sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the SMTP server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will boost your web security tremendously and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud website hosting plans that we offer without doing anything in particular, because the needed records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our name server records, a private key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send periodic emails to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you’ve composed a given message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service comes by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that confirms if a specific email is legitimate or not. This record is created the moment a new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target audience and you will not need to worry about unauthorized people forging your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something really important in case you use email messages to contact your business collaborators.
