DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP mail server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with modified content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This method will increase your web security enormously and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is legitimate. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be bogus may either be tagged as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
In case you host a domain name in a shared hosting account from us, all the needed records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be created by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, on the condition that the domain also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be generated on our email servers, whereas a public key will be published to the DNS system automatically using the TXT record. In this way, you won’t need to do anything manually and you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of this authentication system – your messages will be delivered to any target destination without being denied and nobody will be able to send email messages faking your email addresses. The latter is rather important if the type of your online presence involves sending out periodic offers or newsletters via email to potential and current customers.
