DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding a digital signature to every email message sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is issued based on a private key that’s available on the SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This technology will strengthen your online security enormously and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be counterfeit may either be marked as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

When you purchase any of the Linux shared website hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated by default for any domain that you register under your website hosting account, so you won’t need to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the email messages associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private encryption key will be created instantly on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All addresses set up using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will know that the messages are authentic, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to spoof your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All needed DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to buy a semi-dedicated server package, you won’t need to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain name must use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed on our end and as long as this requirement is fulfilled, a private encryption key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be published to the global DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to forge any address. Both you and your associates or clients can benefit from this feature, as it will ensure a higher level of security for your online communication.
