DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to every email sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will enhance your worldwide web security substantially and you will be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-activated for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud servers, so you won’t need to do anything yourself to activate it. The sole condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in a web hosting account on our end using our NS and MX records, so that the email messages will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this option. The DKIM email authentication system will enable you to send trustable e-mail messages, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for example, your emails will always reach their target audience, while unauthorized 3rd parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service comes by default with any domain name that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is actually the public key that verifies if a certain message is legitimate or not. Such a record is created when a brand-new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated server account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target viewers and you will not have to worry about unsolicited people using your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something quite important if you use email messages to reach your business allies.
