What is DNS in plain English?

DNS stands for “Domain Name System”. These databases act as the “Brains” of domain names.

DNS hosts include Domain Name Registrars (e.g. GoDaddy), Hosting Provider (e.g. AWS), or Security Service (e.g. Cloudflare, Mimecast, Proofpoint). DNS can be hosted on private servers.

Email Authentication🛂📥

What is authentication?

Authentication as a digital ID card for emails; confirming messages are from the authentic sender. It helps emails reach more inboxes and builds confidence with ISPs and recipients.

Authentication helps people trust the emails they receive and makes everyone’s day-to-day experience safer by reducing the chances of phishing, fraud, and spam.

Using the right email authentication practices improves trust and security, which leads to better overall recipient engagement.

Improving Trust

Sender’s Identity: When someone sends you an email, their email service uses authentication techniques to verify that they are who they say they are.

Protection from Spoofing: It helps prevent scammers and spammers from pretending to be someone they’re not. Email authentication helps spot the imposters.

Message Integrity: Email authentication verifies that a middleman hasn’t changed the content of an email during its journey to the inbox.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I hire a Deliverability Manager?

One of the main benefits of hiring a deliverability manager is the expertise they bring to the table. They have a deep understanding of the technical aspects of email deliverability and are up-to-date on the latest industry trends and best practices. This knowledge allows them to navigate the complexities of email deliverability with ease and ensure that your emails are delivered to your subscribers’ inboxes.

Another benefit of working with a deliverability manager is that they can assist with email and IP warming. Email and IP warming is the process of gradually increasing the volume and frequency of emails sent from a new or dormant IP address to establish a positive sender reputation. This process is critical to the success of your email campaigns, and a deliverability manager can help ensure that it is done correctly.

Working with a deliverability manager can also help reduce the risk of being marked as spam. They can help you avoid common pitfalls, such as using spam trigger words, sending emails to unengaged subscribers, or using deceptive subject lines. By following best practices and implementing a targeted email strategy, you can maximize your chances of success and minimize the risk of being flagged as spam.

Finally, a deliverability manager can help you track and analyze your email campaigns’ performance. By monitoring key metrics such as open rates, click-through rates, and bounce rates, they can identify areas for improvement and make data-driven decisions to optimize your email campaigns’ effectiveness.

Working with a deliverability manager can provide numerous benefits for your email marketing campaigns. From establishing a positive sender reputation to maximizing inbox placement rates and reducing the risk of being marked as spam, a deliverability manager can help ensure that your emails are delivered to your subscribers’ inboxes and drive the success of your email marketing efforts.

What is DNS?

DNS stands for “Domain Name System”. DNS records are published to your domain name and are viewable to the public. Internet protocols reference DNS when routing mail, sending users to your website, and controlling everything else a domain does. It is effectively the brain of a domain name.

What are the Columns that make up a DNS record?

The various sections of the DNS zone file are responsible from routing to websites, to powering email and establishing security standards for the domain. Each DNS host has a different layout to their DNS zone files, but essentially the layout for each record consists of 4 columns:

  • Type: What kind of record. There are currently 48+ record types.
  • Name: The keyword associated with the record, usually one “level” above the domain name.
    • Example: If the Name of a Cname record for VBMng.com is “awesome” then this translates to “ awesome.VBmng.com”. This is commonly called a “subdomain”.
  • Value: The address or primary text input for the record.
    • Example: The value for ZoomInfo’s “awesome” Cname is “www.example.com”. The “www.example.com” is used as the address you want users directed to when they type awesome.vbmng.com. Therefore, when someone types “awesome.vbmng.com” it will redirect to “www.example.com”.
  • TTL: Time to live. A record that recommends to other systems how long to cache the DNS value before rechecking.
What is an A record?

The “A Record” section points a domain, or subdomain to a direct IP address. It’s used for leading to websites. Since machines can only read numbers, every web address must end up pointing to an IP address.

What is a DKIM record?

DomainKeys Identified Mail. An email security standard designed to make sure messages aren’t altered in transit between the sender and recipient by using public-key cryptography to sign email with a private key on send. Can be inserted into a DNS Zone as a TXT, or CName record.

What is a DMARC record?

Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance. This protocol uses SPF (Sender Policy Framework), and DKIM (DomainKeys identified mail) to validate authentic email. Having this DNS record makes it easier for Internet Service Providers to prevent malicious email attacks, like phishing. DMARC lets the senders specify how to handle emails that were not authenticated using SPF or DKIM.

Senders can choose to route those unauthorized emails to the spam folder or have them blocked. By doing this, ISPs can better identify spammers and prevent malicious email from attacking client inboxes while minimizing false positives and providing better delivery reporting.

What is a TXT record?

Informational and security records storing authoritative keys that authorize various services. TXT records are most often used to prove that you are the owner of the domain.

What is Can-Spam?

a US law that sets standards for commercial emails and requires marketers to provide opt-out options.

What is GDPR?

A regulation passed in the EU, governing the collection, storage, and processing of personal data and mandating explicit consent from users.

What is CASL?

a Canadian law, requiring businesses to obtain consent before sending commercial electronic messages.
