DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each and every message sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is generated based on a private key that is available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with modified content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This approach will enhance your online security considerably and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send out emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud website hosting packages that we offer without the need to do anything in particular, as the necessary records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send periodic messages to customers or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you’ve written a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is included by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must 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 specific message is genuine or not. This record is created once a domain is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target viewers and you will not have to worry about unsolicited parties spoofing your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something quite important in case you use emails to contact your business partners.
