DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which blocks email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will enhance your worldwide web safety immensely and you will be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be forged may either be marked as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud service that we offer without having to do anything specific, since the mandatory records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. In case you send regular emails to customers or business allies, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your address and make it look like you have written a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is included by default with any domain name that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that confirms if a particular email is genuine or not. This record is created when a domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated server 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 audience and you will not have to worry about unsolicited individuals forging your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something pretty important in case you use email messages to touch base with your business partners.
