DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is created based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the SMTP email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will heighten your web security immensely and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is genuine. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fraudulent may either be marked as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

When you order any of the cloud hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated as standard for any domain name that you add to your shard hosting account, so you will not have to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be created immediately on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All addresses set up with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that the messages are legitimate, since the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to forge your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is offered by default with any domain name that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is in fact the public encryption key that confirms if a particular email is authentic or not. This record is created once a brand-new domain is added to a semi-dedicated account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target audience and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited individuals spoofing your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something really important if you use email messages to touch base with your business associates.
