DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to every message sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This approach will strengthen your web safety noticeably and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud web hosting that we’re offering without doing anything in particular, since the obligatory records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send periodic messages to clients or business associates, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you’ve composed a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with DomainKeys Identified Mail activated by default, so if you pick this type of hosting and you add a domain using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the email authentication system will be set up automatically – a private encryption key on our mail servers for the digital signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global Domain Name System. Since the DKIM protection is set up for a certain domain name, all email addresses created with it will have a signature, so you will not have to worry that the emails that you send out may not reach their target email address or that someone may fake any of your addresses and try to spam/scam people. This may be quite essential if you use email communication in your business, as your colleagues and/or clients will be able to distinguish genuine emails from phony ones.
