DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to every email sent from an email address under a specific domain name. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This technology will boost your worldwide web security noticeably and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud hosting that we offer without the need to do anything in particular, since the necessary records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an active hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send out regular emails to clients or business associates, they will always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have composed a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is included by default with any domain name that’s registered through 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 resource record to be set up, which is actually the public key that verifies if a certain message is legitimate or not. Such a record is set up when a brand-new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target viewers and you will not have to worry about unauthorized persons spoofing your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something pretty important when you use emails to communicate with your business allies.
