DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each and every message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is generated based on a private key that’s available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will strengthen your web security considerably and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be forged may either be labeled as such or may never appear in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

If you order one of the Linux shared hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be activated as standard for any domain that you register under your shared account, so you will not have to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be created instantaneously on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All email addresses created using this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that the messages are authentic, because the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unauthorized people to spoof your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All obligatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to get a semi-dedicated server package, you will not need to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain name should use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by us and in case this condition is satisfied, a private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be added to the global DNS database by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to forge any email address. Both you and your associates or clients can benefit from this service, as it will guarantee a higher safety level for your online communication.
