DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each email message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the sending server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will increase your web security enormously and you will be sure that any email sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send out messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be forged may either be labeled as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each hosting plans that we offer without the need to do anything in particular, since the required records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an active web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be issued and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send out periodic email messages to customers or business associates, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your address and make it look like you have sent a particular message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you opt for any of the semi-dedicated plans that we are offering, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain name that you register through your new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our leading-edge cloud platform will create all the necessary records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain name, as this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send out a new email, it will include our platform’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps growing each year and quite frequently forged addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your customers or associates will not have to bother about that.
