DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which hinders email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding a digital signature to every email message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This approach will strengthen your web security considerably and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is legitimate. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to handle such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

When you purchase one of the cloud hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated as standard for any domain name that you register under your website hosting account, so you won’t have to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails related to this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private key will be created immediately on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will know that they are authentic, as the DKIM functionality makes it impossible for unsolicited persons to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All mandatory DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to purchase a semi-dedicated hosting package, you won’t have to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain name must use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed by our company and if this requirement is answered, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be added to the Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to spoof any address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can take advantage of this service, as it will ensure a higher safety level for your online communication.
