DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which hinders email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding an e-signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This method will heighten your worldwide web security noticeably and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

When you get one of the Linux web hosting services that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled by default for any domain name that you register under your shared account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the emails associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private cryptographic key will be created momentarily on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All addresses created using this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will be sure that the messages are legitimate, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to spoof your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All mandatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to purchase a semi-dedicated server plan, you won’t have to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain name should use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by us and as long as this prerequisite is fulfilled, a private encryption key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the global DNS system by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create with the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your partners or clients can take advantage of this service, since it will guarantee a higher level of protection for your electronic correspondence.
