DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the sending server and it can be verified by 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 recognized by mail service providers. This approach will increase your worldwide web safety significantly and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is legitimate. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be forged may either be flagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase any of the cloud website hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you register under your website hosting account, so you will not need to create any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private encryption key will be generated straight away on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All email addresses set up 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 audience and the recipients will be sure that they are legitimate, as the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unauthorized people to forge your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you opt for any of the semi-dedicated plans offered by our company, you will be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain name that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our leading-edge cloud hosting platform will set up all the compulsory records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so anytime you send a new email message, it will have our system’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages continues to rise every year and rather frequently spoofed email addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates will not have to worry about that.
