DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that is available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with edited content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web security noticeably and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be forged may either be flagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is enabled by default for all domain names that are hosted in a hosting account on our cloud hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to activate it. The sole requirement is that the particular domain name should be hosted in an account on our platform using our NS and MX records, so that the email messages will go through our mail servers. The private key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail authentication system will permit you to send credible e-mails, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for example, your email messages will always reach their target audience, whereas unsolicited third parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting come with DomainKeys Identified Mail enabled by default, so if you select this type of hosting and you add a domain using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be set up automatically – a private encryption key on our email servers for the electronic signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global DNS system. As the protection is set up for a given domain name, all e-mail addresses created with it will have a signature, so you will not need to worry that the email messages that you send may not be delivered to their target address or that someone may fake any of your email addresses and try to spam/scam people. This may be extremely essential when you rely on email communication in your business, as your associates and/or customers will be able to distinguish legitimate messages from spoofed ones.
