DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption 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 message with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will strengthen your web safety enormously and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be fake may either be labeled as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every website hosting that we are offering without having to do anything in particular, since the compulsory records for using this email validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an active web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain uses our NS records, a private key will be created and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send out periodic emails to clients or business associates, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited individual will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you have composed a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All mandatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan, you won’t have to set up anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name should use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed by us and in case this requirement is satisfied, a private encryption key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to forge any address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can benefit from this option, since it will ensure a much higher security level for your e-correspondence.
