DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication 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 message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This method will boost your worldwide web safety immensely and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is legitimate. When you send out emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to handle such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud hosting that we are offering without needing to do anything specific, as the mandatory records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send periodic messages to customers or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your address and make it look like you’ve written a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is included by default with any domain that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is actually the public cryptographic key that verifies if a given email is legitimate or not. This record is created once a brand new domain is added to a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target viewers and you won’t need to worry about unsolicited parties forging your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something pretty important if you use emails to touch base with your business collaborators.
