DomainKeys Identified Mail
Find out more about DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) and also just how this feature can your business.
DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each and every message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This approach will strengthen your web safety enormously and you’ll know for sure that any message sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is a genuine one. When you send out email 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 bogus may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
You will be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every website hosting
that we’re offering without having to do anything specific, because the mandatory records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send out regular emails to clients or business collaborators, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you’ve written a given email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All obligatory DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server
account, so if you decide to purchase a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not have to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by our company and provided that this precondition is answered, a private cryptographic key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the DNS system by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you set up using the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any email address. Both you and your partners or clients can take advantage of this feature, since it will ensure a much higher level of protection for your electronic correspondence.
