DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will enhance your worldwide web security dramatically and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send messages, the recipient will also know for 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 be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud web hosting account on our cloud servers, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to activate it. The sole requirement is that the particular domain name should be hosted in a hosting account on our end using our NS and MX records, so that the email messages will go through our email servers. The private encryption key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which includes the public key, will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email validation system will allow you to send out trustable e-mails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for example, your email messages will always reach their target destination, whereas unsolicited third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages come with DKIM enabled by default, so if you select a semi-dedicated package and you add a domain using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be created automatically – a private cryptographic key on our mail servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global Domain Name System. Since the protection is set up for a particular domain, all e-mail addresses created under it will carry a signature, so you will not need to worry that the emails that you send out may not be delivered to their destination email address or that somebody may fake any of your addresses and try to scam/spam people. This may be extremely essential if you rely on e-communication in your business, since your associates and/or clients will be able to distinguish authentic emails from bogus ones.
