DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to every email sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will boost your web safety immensely and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be phony may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-enabled for all domains that are hosted in a cloud website hosting account on our cloud servers, so you won’t need to do anything on your end to activate it. The only requirement is that the particular 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 email servers. The private key will be created on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the DNS system automatically, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this feature. The DKIM email validation system will allow you to send out credible e-mails, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for example, your email messages will always reach their target destination, whereas unauthorized third parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is included by default with any domain name that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is actually the public encryption key that verifies if a given message is genuine or not. This record is created when a domain name is registered in an account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target destination and you will not need to worry about unsolicited individuals spoofing your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something really important in case you use email messages to communicate with your business allies.
