DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a specific domain name. The signature is generated based on a private key that is available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This technology will enhance your online security dramatically and you will be sure that any message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fake may either be labeled as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

If you obtain any of the hosting plans that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain that you add to your account, so you won’t have to set up any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the emails related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be issued instantaneously on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All email addresses set up with this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will know that the messages are legitimate, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you pick any of the semi-dedicated plans offered by our company, you will be able to use DKIM protection with any domain name that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our advanced cloud web hosting platform will create all the required records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT record to be created for the domain, as this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send a new email, it will have our system’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps rising every year and rather frequently bogus email addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or partners won’t need to bother about that.
