DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to every message sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is published on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This method will enhance your worldwide web security dramatically and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be bogus may either be flagged as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is pre-activated for all domains that are hosted in a shared web hosting account on our cloud servers, so you won’t need to do anything on your end to turn it on. The only condition is that the given domain name should be hosted in an account on our end using our NS and MX records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our email servers. The private encryption key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global DNS database automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this option. The DKIM email authentication system will allow you to send credible emails, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for example, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited third parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service comes by default with any domain name that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that verifies if a certain message is legitimate or not. This record is created as soon as a domain is added to a semi-dedicated server account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target audience and you won’t need to worry about unsolicited persons forging your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is essential if you use email messages to touch base with your business associates.
