DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each message sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will heighten your online safety immensely and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is an authentic one. When you send messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be counterfeit may either be labeled 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 Cloud Web Hosting

When you purchase any of the cloud web hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be activated by default for any domain name that you add to your shared account, so you will not have to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private key will be created instantaneously on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All addresses set up with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will know that the messages are authentic, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to spoof your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is offered by default with any domain name that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is in fact the public key that verifies if a specific message is genuine or not. Such a record is set up as soon as a brand new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated server account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target viewers and you will not have to worry about unsolicited people forging your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something very important if you use email messages to reach your business partners.
