DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will heighten your web safety markedly and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

In case you host a domain name in a shared hosting account with us, all the compulsory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be set up by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, on the condition that your domain also uses our NS records. A private key will be generated on our email servers, whereas a public key will be published to the global DNS system automatically using the TXT record. Thus, you will not have to do anything manually and you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of this email authentication system – your emails will reach any audience without being disallowed and nobody will be able to send emails forging your addresses. The latter is pretty important if the essence of your web presence involves sending out regular offers or newsletters via email to prospective and current customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you choose any of the semi-dedicated servers offered by us, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature with any domain that you register through your brand-new account without any manual setup, as our outstanding cloud web hosting platform will set up all the mandatory records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send a new email message, it will include our platform’s electronic signature. The number of spam emails continues to increase every year and rather often false addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues will not need to worry about that.
