DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which prevents email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This approach will heighten your online security tremendously and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is an authentic one. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to handle such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

When you buy any of the Linux web hosting packages that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated as standard for any domain that you add to your web hosting account, so you won’t need to create any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the emails related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be generated immediately on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All email addresses set up with this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will know that the messages are legitimate, as the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality comes by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is in fact the public key that verifies if a certain email message is genuine or not. Such a record is set up once a brand-new domain 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 email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target audience and you will not have to worry about unsolicited parties using your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important if you use email messages to contact your business associates.
