DomainKeys Identified Mail
What lies behind the acronym DKIM? How could this feature help your e-mail marketing strategies?
DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which hinders email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding an electronic signature to every email message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web security greatly and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is genuine. 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 appears to be fraudulent may either be tagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host a domain in a cloud website hosting
account with our company, all the obligatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be set up by default. This will happen once you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, as long as it also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be generated on our mail servers, while a public key will be added to the DNS system automatically using the TXT resource record. In this way, you won’t need to do anything manually and you will be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this email validation system – your emails will reach any target destination without being disallowed and nobody will be able to send messages forging your addresses. The latter is rather important if the nature of your online presence involves sending regular offers or newsletters via email to prospective and current customers.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is offered by default with any domain name that is added to a semi-dedicated server
account with us. The domain should 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 created, which is actually the public cryptographic key that verifies if a particular email message is legitimate or not. Such a record is created once a brand-new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target destination and you will not have to worry about unauthorized persons spoofing your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something quite important in case you use emails to reach your business allies.
