DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each and every message sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be verified by using 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 spotted by email service providers. This method will strengthen your web safety immensely and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be phony may either be flagged as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-enabled for all domain names that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you will not need to do anything on your end to enable it. The sole condition is that the given domain name should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our MX and NS records, so that the emails will go through our email servers. The private encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the DNS system automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will enable you to send out trustworthy e-mails, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with DomainKeys Identified Mail activated by default, so in case you choose a semi-dedicated hosting plan and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be created automatically – a private cryptographic key on our email servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the Domain Name System. As the DKIM protection is set up for a given domain name, all addresses created with it will have a signature, so you won’t need to worry that the emails that you send out may not reach their target address or that somebody may fake any of your email addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be really essential in case you use e-communication in your business, since your associates and/or clients will be able to distinguish real email messages from bogus ones.
