DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each email sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with changed content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will strengthen your web safety enormously and you’ll know for sure that any message sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send out messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be phony may either be labeled as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

In case you host a domain in a shared hosting account with our company, all the necessary records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be added by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, as long as it also uses our NS records. A private key will be created on our mail servers, whereas a public key will be published to the global DNS database automatically using the TXT record. In this way, you won’t need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to take full advantage of all the benefits of this authentication system – your email messages will reach any audience without being denied and no one will be able to send out messages faking your addresses. The latter is quite important in case the essence of your web presence involves sending periodic offers or newsletters via email to potential and existing customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting service that we offer, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain name that you add to your brand-new account without any manual setup, as our innovative cloud web hosting platform will create all the necessary records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, since 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 email servers, so whenever you send out a new message, it will include our system’s e-signature. The number of spam messages continues to grow every year and rather often counterfeit email addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues won’t have to worry about that.
