DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outbound mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This approach will enhance your worldwide web safety significantly and you’ll know for sure that any message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be forged may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud hosting plans that we offer without needing to do anything specific, as the compulsory records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain in question uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be issued and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. In case you send regular email messages to customers or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve written a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is offered by default with any domain that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is actually the public key that verifies if a certain message is legitimate or not. Such a record is created the moment a new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target readers and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited parties forging your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important if you use emails to get in touch with your business collaborators.
