DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be identified by mail service providers. This technology will strengthen your web security greatly and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-enabled for all domains that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to activate it. The sole condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our platform using our MX and NS resource records, so that the e-mail messages will go through our mail servers. The private encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS database automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DKIM authentication system will permit you to send out credible e-mails, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for example, your email messages will always reach their target destination, while unsolicited 3rd parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is offered by default with any domain name that’s added to 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 platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is actually the public key that verifies if a given message is genuine or not. Such a record is created once a brand-new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target viewers and you won’t need to worry about unsolicited people using your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something pretty important if you use email messages to touch base with your business partners.
