DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which hinders email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding a digital signature to every message sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will increase your online safety substantially and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

In case you host a domain name in a hosting account with us, all the necessary records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be created by default. This will happen once you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided that the domain also uses our NS records. A private encryption key will be created on our mail servers, whereas a public key will be published to the Domain Name System automatically using the TXT resource record. Thus, you won’t need to do anything manually and you will be able to make use of all the benefits of this email validation system – your email messages will reach any target destination without being rejected and nobody will be able to send emails forging your addresses. The latter is truly important in case the type of your online presence involves sending out regular newsletters or offers via email to potential and existing customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you choose any of the semi-dedicated hosting services that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain that you add to your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual setup, as our top-notch cloud web hosting platform will set up all the compulsory records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain name, as this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send a new email message, it will have our platform’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages keeps rising each year and rather frequently forged addresses are used, but if you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or partners will not need to worry about that.
