DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to every email sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This technology will enhance your worldwide web safety markedly and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be counterfeit may either be flagged as such or may never show up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
If you purchase one of the hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated by default for any domain name that you add to your shared account, so you will not have to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be issued right away on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All addresses set up using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will know that the messages are legitimate, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unsolicited persons to forge your addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All mandatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to purchase a semi-dedicated server plan, you won’t need to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed on our end and in case this requirement is satisfied, a private key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be added to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All addresses that you set up with the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any email address. Both you and your associates or clients can benefit from this service, since it will guarantee a much higher protection level for your online communication.
