DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each email message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that’s available on the sending server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This method will enhance your worldwide web safety considerably and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fake may either be tagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

In case you host a domain name in a shared hosting account from us, all the necessary records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be set up by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, as long as the domain also uses our NS resource records. A private cryptographic key will be generated on our mail servers, whereas a public key will be published to the global DNS system automatically by using the TXT record. Thus, you won’t have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to take full advantage of all the benefits of this authentication system – your emails will be sent to any target destination without being rejected and nobody will be able to send out messages forging your email addresses. The latter is pretty important if the essence of your online presence suggests sending regular newsletters or offers via email to prospective and current clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All required DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to get a semi-dedicated server plan, you will not have to set up anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed by us and if this precondition is met, a private encryption key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be published to the Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can take advantage of this option, since it will ensure a much higher protection level for your email correspondence.
