DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to every message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that’s available on the SMTP email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This approach will strengthen your online security dramatically and you will be sure that any message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, 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 that turns out to be fake may either be labeled as such or may never appear in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

In case you host a domain in a web hosting account from our company, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be added by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, on the condition that the domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers, whereas a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically using the TXT resource record. Thus, you will not need to do anything manually and you will be able to take full advantage of all the benefits of this email authentication system – your emails will be sent to any destination without being rejected and nobody will be able to send emails forging your addresses. The latter is truly important if the type of your web presence suggests sending out regular newsletters or offers via email to potential and existing clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All obligatory DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to order a semi-dedicated hosting package, you will not have to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name must use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed by our company and provided that this prerequisite is fulfilled, a private encryption key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be sent to the DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can benefit from this option, since it will ensure a much higher level of safety for your electronic correspondence.
