DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outbound mail 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 providers. This method will strengthen your worldwide web safety considerably and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

When you purchase one of the cloud hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated as standard for any domain that you add to your web hosting account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be issued instantly on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All email addresses created using this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will know that they are genuine, because the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unauthorized individuals to forge your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you select any of the semi-dedicated servers offered by us, you’ll be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our innovative cloud platform will create all the required records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT resource record to be set up 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 mail servers, so every time you send out a new email, it will have our platform’s e-signature. The number of junk messages continues to grow every year and quite frequently bogus email addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates will not need to bother about that.
