DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which hinders email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outbound SMTP 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 with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will strengthen your online security considerably and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fraudulent may either be tagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s inbox, depending 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 domain names that are hosted in a shared web hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you won’t need to do anything on your end to turn it on. The only condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in a web hosting account on our end using our MX and NS records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our email servers. The private encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the Domain Name System automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this feature. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email authentication system will enable you to send credible e-mail messages, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target destination, while unauthorized third parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature comes by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our system. 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 given message is authentic or not. Such a record is set up the moment a brand new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target audience and you will not have to worry about unsolicited individuals using your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something rather important when you use email messages to contact your business partners.
