DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to every email sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will boost your online security significantly and you will be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be fake may either be marked as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each web hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything specific, because the compulsory records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send periodic emails to clients or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your address and make it look like you’ve composed a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you opt for one of the semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM protection service with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our high-tech cloud platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT record to be created for the domain, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send a new email message, it will include our system’s electronic signature. The number of spam emails continues to increase each year and very often spoofed addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or partners will not have to worry about that.
