DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each email sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound 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 altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will enhance your worldwide web safety immensely and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fake may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

When you order one of the cloud hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be activated as standard for any domain that you add to your shared web hosting account, so you will not need to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be created momentarily on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All addresses set up using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that the messages are genuine, as the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to forge your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you select any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature with any domain that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our leading-edge cloud platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send out a new email message, it will carry our system’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps rising each year and quite frequently false email addresses are used, but if you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues won’t have to bother about that.
