DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which prevents email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to every message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private 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. In this way, any message with modified content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web safety noticeably and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is genuine. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase one of the cloud website hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you add to your hosting account, so you will not need to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private encryption key will be issued instantaneously on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All addresses created 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 recipients will be sure that they are legitimate, as the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to forge your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans come with DKIM activated by default, so in case you select a semi-dedicated hosting package and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the email validation system will be set up automatically – a private encryption key on our email servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the DNS system. Since the protection is set up for a given domain, all addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you won’t need to worry that the emails that you send may not reach their destination address or that somebody may fake any of your addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be really essential when you rely on email communication in your business, as your partners and/or clients will be able to distinguish authentic emails from false ones.
