DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each email message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will enhance your worldwide web security enormously and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send out emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every web hosting that we’re offering without doing anything specific, because the necessary records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain name uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be generated and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send out periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they will always be received and no unauthorized party will be able to forge your address and make it look like you’ve sent a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All mandatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to purchase a semi-dedicated hosting package, you won’t need to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed on our end and if this precondition is satisfied, a private key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the DNS database by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you set up using the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to forge any email address. Both you and your associates or clients can benefit from this service, as it will ensure a much higher protection level for your email communication.
