DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private key that is available on the SMTP mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This method will boost your web safety greatly and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., is a genuine one. When you send messages, the recipient 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 tagged as such or may never reach the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

If you obtain one of the Linux hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain that you add to your website hosting account, so you won’t have to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource 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 instantly on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that they are genuine, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to spoof your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All necessary DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan, you won’t have to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed on our end and if this requirement is fulfilled, a private cryptographic key will be generated 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 set up using the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can take advantage of this feature, as it will ensure a higher level of security for your electronic communication.
