DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to every email sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the sending server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by mail service providers. This method will boost your worldwide web security immensely and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be counterfeit may either be marked as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a domain name in a cloud hosting account with our company, all the obligatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be added by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in , on the condition that the domain also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be created on our email servers, whereas a public key will be published to the global DNS database automatically by using the TXT record. Thus, you will not need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to make use of all the benefits of this authentication system – your emails will be delivered to any audience without being rejected and no one will be able to send out email messages faking your email addresses. The latter is pretty important if the nature of your Internet presence involves sending out periodic offers or newsletters via email to potential and existing clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is offered by default with any domain name that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is in fact the public key that confirms if a given email message is legitimate or not. Such a record is set up when a domain is registered in a semi-dedicated account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target audience and you will not need to worry about unsolicited parties forging your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something rather important in case you use email messages to touch base with your business allies.
