DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which hinders email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each email sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is published based on a private key that is available on the SMTP email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This method will enhance your web safety markedly and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send 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 labeled as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every website hosting services that we offer without doing anything in particular, because the required records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send periodic emails to clients or business allies, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services come with DKIM enabled by default, so if you choose a semi-dedicated package and you add a domain using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email authentication system will be created automatically – a private key on our mail servers for the digital signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the DNS database. As the DKIM protection is set up for a certain domain name, all e-mail addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you won’t need to worry that the messages that you send out may not be delivered to their target email address or that somebody may fake any of your addresses and try to scam/spam people. This may be really essential in case you use email communication in your business, since your associates and/or clients will be able to distinguish legitimate emails from fake ones.
