DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which hinders email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a specific domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the sending server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web safety greatly and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send out 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 bogus may either be labeled as such or may never reach the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

When you purchase any of the Linux shared hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled by default for any domain that you add to your shard hosting account, so you will not have to create any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the emails associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private encryption key will be generated right away on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All email addresses set up using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that the messages are legitimate, since the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you opt for one of the semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain that you add to your brand-new account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud platform will set up all the necessary records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT 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 anytime you send a new email, it will include our platform’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages keeps increasing every year and rather frequently counterfeit email addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates will not have to bother about that.
