DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with edited content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This approach will strengthen your worldwide web safety immensely and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is legitimate. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to treat such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

If you order any of the website hosting plans that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you register under your hosting account, so you won’t need to create any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be issued instantaneously on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All email addresses set up using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will be sure that they are genuine, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose one of the semi-dedicated plans offered by us, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our avant-garde cloud hosting platform will set up all the needed records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send a new email, it will carry our platform’s digital signature. The number of junk email messages keeps rising every year and quite frequently spoofed email addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your customers or partners won’t need to worry about that.
