DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each email sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This approach will increase your web safety substantially and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

When you buy any of the cloud hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled by default for any domain name that you add to your shared account, so you will not need to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private cryptographic key will be issued straight away on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All email addresses created with 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 receivers will be sure that they are authentic, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you choose any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer, you will be able to use the DKIM option with any domain name that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send a new email message, it will include our platform’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages continues to increase each year and very often counterfeit email addresses are used, but if you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues won’t need to bother about that.
