DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each email sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will increase your web safety substantially and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is genuine. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be 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 enter the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a domain name in a cloud hosting account with our company, all the mandatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be set up by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, as long as it also uses our NS records. A private key will be generated on our mail servers, whereas a public key will be published to the global DNS database automatically by using the TXT record. Thus, you won’t have to do anything manually and you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of this email validation system – your email messages will be delivered to any target audience without being denied and no one will be able to send emails forging your addresses. The latter is quite important if the essence of your online presence involves sending periodic newsletters or offers via email to prospective and current clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is offered by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is actually the public cryptographic key that confirms if a given email is genuine or not. Such a record is set up when a domain is added to a semi-dedicated hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target destination and you will not have to worry about unauthorized parties using your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important if you use email messages to reach your business associates.
