DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that’s available on the SMTP email server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This method will strengthen your web security enormously and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux website hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything in particular, because the required records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain name uses our NS records, a private key will be issued and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. In case you send regular messages to clients or business associates, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you have composed a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers come with DomainKeys Identified Mail activated by default, so if you opt for a semi-dedicated server plan and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be created automatically – a private key on our mail servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global DNS database. As the protection is set up for a particular domain, all e-mail addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the email messages that you send out may not be delivered to their destination address or that someone may forge any of your email addresses and try to scam/spam people. This may be really important in case you rely on e-communication in your business, as your colleagues and/or customers will be able to distinguish real messages from false ones.
