DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that is available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This method will boost your online safety substantially and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be forged may either be labeled as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to treat such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host a domain name in a shared web hosting account with our company, all the compulsory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be added by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, as long as your domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be created on our mail servers, while a public key will be published to the global DNS system automatically by using the TXT record. Thus, you will not have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to take full advantage of all the benefits of this validation system – your emails will be sent to any audience without being rejected and nobody will be able to send out emails forging your addresses. The latter is really important in case the type of your worldwide web presence involves sending out periodic newsletters or offers via email to potential and existing clients.
