DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is created based on a private key that is available on the SMTP server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web security markedly and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be forged may either be labeled as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

If you order one of the Linux shared services that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled by default for any domain name that you add to your website hosting account, so you won’t have to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the emails related to this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private key will be generated right away on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name 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 audience and the recipients will be sure that they are authentic, since the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to forge your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is included by default with any domain name that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is actually the public cryptographic key that confirms if a given email is legitimate or not. This record is created once a brand-new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated server 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 destination and you will not need to worry about unsolicited individuals spoofing your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something very important in case you use email messages to reach your business associates.
