DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that’s available on the sending server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with modified content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This technology will boost your worldwide web security enormously and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send email messages, the receiver 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 be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud hosting that we’re offering without the need to do anything in particular, as the required records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain in question uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized party will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is included by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is actually the public key that confirms if a certain email is genuine or not. This record is set up the moment a new domain 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 make use of our web and email hosting services, your messages will always reach their target destination and you will not have to worry about unsolicited persons using your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something pretty important in case you use email messages to reach your business partners.
