DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This technology will boost your worldwide web security substantially and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

When you order one of the cloud website hosting plans that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated as standard for any domain 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 name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails related to this domain will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be issued instantly on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All addresses set up with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that they are legitimate, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unauthorized people to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service comes by default with any domain name that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is in fact the public key that confirms if a particular message is genuine or not. This record is set up when a new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target audience and you won’t need to worry about unsolicited parties using your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is essential in case you use email messages to communicate with your business collaborators.
