DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each email message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This approach will strengthen your worldwide web security substantially and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is pre-activated for all domain names that are hosted in a shared hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you will not have to do anything on your end to turn it on. The only requirement is that the given domain should be hosted in an account on our platform using our MX and NS resource records, so that the e-mails will go through our email servers. The private cryptographic key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which includes the public key, will be published to the DNS database automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail authentication system will permit you to send out credible e-mails, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for instance, your emails will always reach their target viewers, whereas unsolicited 3rd parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is included by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is in fact the public encryption key that confirms if a given email message is authentic or not. Such a record is created when a domain is registered in an account through 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 emails will always reach their target readers and you won’t need to worry about unsolicited individuals using your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something quite important in case you use emails to get in touch with your business partners.
