DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to every email message sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that is 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 changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will enhance your web security dramatically and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-activated for all domain names that are hosted in a shared web hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you won’t need to do anything yourself to turn it on. The sole condition is that the particular domain name should be hosted in a website hosting account on our end using our NS and MX records, so that the e-mails will go through our mail servers. The private encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the Domain Name System automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email authentication system will allow you to send credible email messages, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for example, your emails will always reach their target destination, while unauthorized third parties will not be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option 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 handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that confirms if a specific message is authentic or not. This record is created as soon as a new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target readers and you will not have to worry about unauthorized individuals using your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important in case you use emails to touch base with your business collaborators.
