DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to every email sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is published on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This approach will boost your online security tremendously and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fraudulent may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is activated by default for all domain names that are hosted in a shared web hosting account on our cloud servers, so you won’t need to do anything yourself to turn it on. The sole requirement is that the particular domain name should be hosted in a hosting account on our end using our MX and NS resource records, so that the e-mails will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic key will be created on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS database automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this option. The DomainKeys Identified Mail validation system will allow you to send credible messages, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for instance, your emails will always reach their target destination, whereas unauthorized third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature comes by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is in fact the public key that verifies if a given email is authentic or not. Such a record is created the moment a brand new domain is registered in an account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target audience and you won’t need to worry about unauthorized parties using your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something quite important if you use email messages to touch base with your business collaborators.
