DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by adding a digital signature to each and every email sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that is available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will heighten your worldwide web safety tremendously and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is genuine. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be counterfeit may either be flagged as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

If you obtain any of the web hosting packages that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated as standard for any domain name that you add to your web hosting account, so you won’t need to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private cryptographic key will be created immediately on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All addresses created with this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that the messages are genuine, since the DKIM functionality makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All necessary DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to get a semi-dedicated hosting package, you won’t have to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain name must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by us and if this requirement is fulfilled, a private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be added to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to forge any address. Both you and your partners or clients can benefit from this service, as it will guarantee a much higher level of safety for your email communication.
