DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the sending server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will boost your web safety noticeably and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send email messages, the receiver 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, based on how the given provider has decided to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

When you obtain any of the Linux cloud web hosting packages that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled as standard for any domain that you register under your shared account, so you won’t have to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private key will be issued immediately on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All addresses set up with this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that the messages are genuine, because the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to spoof your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages come with DKIM activated by default, so in case you choose a semi-dedicated server package and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be created automatically – a private encryption key on our mail servers for the electronic signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global DNS system. Since the DKIM protection is set up for a given domain name, all email addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you won’t need to worry that the emails that you send out may not be delivered to their target email address or that somebody may forge any of your email addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be quite essential when you use email communication in your business, since your colleagues and/or customers will be able to distinguish authentic email messages from counterfeit ones.
