DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each email sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is published on the basis of a private key that is available on the outgoing 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 email message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will enhance your worldwide web security greatly and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is genuine. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fraudulent may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

If you purchase any of the shared hosting packages that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated as standard for any domain name that you add to your website hosting account, so you won’t have to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the emails associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be generated right away on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All addresses set up using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will know that they are authentic, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unauthorized individuals to spoof your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is offered 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 records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is actually the public key that verifies if a particular message is authentic or not. This record is created as soon as a domain is registered in a semi-dedicated server account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target readers and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized people spoofing your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is essential if you use email messages to contact your business collaborators.
