DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which hinders email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each email sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the 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 spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This approach will increase your worldwide web safety noticeably and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fake may either be labeled as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

When you order any of the website hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you add to your hosting account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private key will be generated instantaneously on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All addresses created with this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that they are authentic, because the DKIM functionality makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to forge your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you select one of the semi-dedicated servers offered by our company, you’ll be able to use DKIM protection with any domain name that you register through your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our avant-garde cloud hosting platform will create all the needed records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain name, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so anytime you send out a new message, it will have our platform’s electronic signature. The number of junk messages keeps increasing every year and rather frequently false email addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or partners will not have to bother about that.
