DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to every email sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This approach will boost your online safety considerably and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be bogus may either be flagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared web hosting plans that we are offering without needing to do anything in particular, since the required records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. In case you send periodic email messages to clients or business associates, they will always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have sent a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is offered by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is actually the public cryptographic key that verifies if a particular email message is authentic or not. This record is set up the moment a brand-new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your messages will always reach their target destination and you will not have to worry about unsolicited persons spoofing your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important when you use emails to reach your business allies.
