DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which hinders email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding an electronic signature to every email sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is created based on a private key that’s available on the outbound email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web security dramatically and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to treat such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

If you purchase any of the web hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated by default for any domain name that you add to your 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 in-house built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the emails related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private cryptographic key will be generated instantaneously on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All addresses created using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will be sure that they are genuine, since the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized individuals to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All mandatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to order a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you won’t have to set up anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name must use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed by our company and if this precondition is matched, a private encryption key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can benefit from this option, since it will ensure a higher protection level for your email correspondence.
