DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which prevents email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will enhance your online security enormously and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is legitimate. When you send out emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be phony may either be labeled as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

When you obtain one of the Linux cloud web hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you register under your shared website hosting account, so you will not need to set up any records or to activate 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 email messages associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private cryptographic key will be issued momentarily on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All email addresses set up with 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 destination and the recipients will know that the messages are authentic, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unsolicited people to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is included by default with any domain that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is in fact the public key that verifies if a particular message is authentic or not. This record is created the moment a new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated server account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target viewers and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized parties using your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something pretty important in case you use email messages to reach your business collaborators.
