DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication 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 message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outbound mail server and it can be validated by 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 providers. This method will strengthen your web security immensely and you’ll know for sure that any message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never end up in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

When you purchase any of the Linux hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you add to your shard hosting account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails related to this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private encryption key will be issued momentarily on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All addresses set up using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will be sure that they are genuine, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to forge your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is included by default with any domain name that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that verifies if a particular email message is legitimate or not. This record is set up as soon as a brand-new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target viewers and you will not have to worry about unauthorized individuals spoofing your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something quite important if you use emails to touch base with your business partners.
