DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web security significantly and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be phony may either be labeled as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud website hosting that we’re offering without the need to do anything specific, since the necessary records for using this validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain in question uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send out regular messages to customers or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you’ve sent a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All required DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to use this type of hosting, you won’t have to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed by us and provided that this precondition is satisfied, a private key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be published to the DNS database by a special TXT record. All addresses that you set up using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any email address. Both you and your associates or customers can take advantage of this functionality, as it will guarantee a much higher level of safety for your email correspondence.
