DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to every email message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This method will strengthen your online safety immensely and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is included by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is in fact the public key that confirms if a given email is genuine or not. Such a record is set up the moment a domain name is added to an account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target readers and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized parties spoofing your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something really important when you use emails to reach your business allies.
