DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each and every email sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that is available on the outbound email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web security dramatically and you will be sure that any email sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send emails, 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 marked as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

When you order any of the cloud hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you add to your hosting account, so you will not need to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the email messages related to this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private key will be generated right away on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All email addresses created using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will be sure that they are legitimate, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option comes by default with any domain name that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is actually the public encryption key that confirms if a specific email is legitimate or not. Such a record is created as soon as a new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target viewers and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized people using your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something quite important if you use emails to get in touch with your business collaborators.
