DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email addresses from being spoofed 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 specific domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will enhance your online safety tremendously and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send out emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be counterfeit may either be marked as such or may never reach the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared plans that we are offering without needing to do anything in particular, because the mandatory records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing 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 mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send out regular email messages to customers or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All necessary DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to purchase a semi-dedicated hosting package, you won’t need to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain name must use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed on our end and as long as this prerequisite is satisfied, a private key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the global DNS database by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to forge any email address. Both you and your associates or clients can take advantage of this functionality, since it will ensure a much higher level of protection for your email correspondence.
