DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding a digital signature to each and every email sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that is available on the SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This method will boost your online security considerably and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is a genuine one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be forged may either be labeled as such or may never reach the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each website hosting plans that we offer without doing anything specific, since the necessary records for using this email validation 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. If the given domain name uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. In case you send out regular emails to clients or business associates, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you have sent a certain message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All obligatory DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to use this type of hosting, you won’t have to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed on our end and if this prerequisite is answered, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your associates or customers can take advantage of this service, as it will ensure a higher security level for your electronic communication.
