DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the SMTP mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web security considerably and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is authentic. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be phony may either be labeled as such or may never reach the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting
When you get one of the shared website hosting plans that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated as standard for any domain that you register under your shared website hosting account, so you will not have to set up 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 MX and NS resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be generated right away on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All email addresses created with this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that they are authentic, because the DKIM option makes it impossible for unsolicited persons to spoof your addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All necessary DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to get a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not need to configure anything to be able to use 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 in case this requirement is matched, a private key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be sent to the DNS system by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any address. Both you and your associates or clients can benefit from this functionality, as it will ensure a higher protection level for your e-communication.
