DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each email sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This method will heighten your web security markedly and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. 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 turns out to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never reach the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every hosting plans that we’re offering without the need to do anything specific, since the compulsory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be generated 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 out periodic emails to customers or business allies, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited individual will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have composed a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with DKIM activated by default, so in case you select a semi-dedicated hosting package and you add a domain using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the email authentication 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 system. Since the protection is set up for a specific domain name, all e-mail addresses created with it will have a signature, so you won’t need to worry that the emails that you send out may not reach their target email address or that someone may forge any of your email addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be really essential when you use email communication in your business, as your partners and/or customers will be able to distinguish real messages from counterfeit ones.
