DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding an e-signature to each message sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will heighten your online safety immensely and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be phony may either be marked as such or may never end up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

When you buy one of the cloud web hosting plans that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be activated as standard for any domain that you register under your web hosting account, so you will not have to set up any records or to activate 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 emails related to this domain will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private key will be generated instantly on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All addresses created using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will know that they are genuine, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to spoof your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose any of the semi-dedicated plans offered by us, you will be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain that you register through your brand-new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our innovative cloud hosting platform will set up all the compulsory records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, as this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send a new message, it will carry our system’s digital signature. The number of junk messages keeps increasing every year and very frequently counterfeit email addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not have to worry about that.
