DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by mail service providers. This technology will increase your web safety enormously and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is an authentic one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be bogus may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

When you purchase any of the Linux shared packages that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled by default for any domain name that you add to your shard hosting account, so you will not have to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private key will be created momentarily on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All addresses set up using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that the messages are authentic, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to spoof your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is offered by default with any domain that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that confirms if a certain email message is authentic or not. Such a record is created as soon as a brand new domain name 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 use our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target destination and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited individuals using your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something very important when you use email messages to reach your business allies.
