DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to every message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This method will enhance your worldwide web security immensely and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a bank, 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 that appears to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-enabled for all domains that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything yourself to activate it. The only requirement is that the given domain should be hosted in an account on our platform using our NS and MX resource records, so that the e-mails will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this option. The DKIM validation system will allow you to send trustable messages, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for instance, your emails will always reach their target destination, while unauthorized third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting come with DKIM activated by default, so if you select this type of hosting and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the email validation system will be set up automatically – a private key on our mail servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the Domain Name System. As the protection is set up for a given domain name, all e-mail addresses created with it will carry a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the emails that you send may not reach their destination address or that somebody may forge any of your addresses and try to scam/spam people. This may be extremely essential in case you rely on electronic communication in your business, as your associates and/or customers will be able to distinguish authentic emails from false ones.
