DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each email sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will heighten your worldwide web safety substantially and you will be sure that any message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

If you purchase one of the web hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be activated by default for any domain that you add to your shared website hosting account, so you will not need to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private encryption key will be issued momentarily on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All email addresses created with this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that they are legitimate, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All compulsory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to get a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not have to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed by us and if this prerequisite is answered, a private encryption key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create using the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your partners or clients can take advantage of this feature, since it will guarantee a much higher level of security for your electronic communication.
