DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is published on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the SMTP mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will strengthen your worldwide web safety noticeably and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is legitimate. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

When you order one of the shared web hosting plans that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated by default for any domain that you add to your hosting account, so you will not have to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the emails related to this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be generated instantly on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All email addresses set up with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will know that the messages are authentic, since the DKIM option makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is offered by default with any domain that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is actually the public key that verifies if a particular email is authentic or not. This record is created when a brand new domain is added to a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target audience and you won’t need to worry about unauthorized people using your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something quite important if you use email messages to get in touch with your business collaborators.
