DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each email sent from an address under a certain 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 with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will heighten your web safety greatly and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

If you host a domain name in a shared website hosting account with our company, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be added by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain name in the Control Panel’s Hosted Domains section, as long as your domain also uses our NS records. A private encryption key will be created on our email servers, while a public key will be published to the global DNS database automatically by using the TXT resource record. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually and you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of this authentication system – your emails will be delivered to any target audience without being disallowed and no one will be able to send emails forging your email addresses. The latter is very important in case the nature of your online presence suggests sending out regular newsletters or offers via email to potential and existing clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with DKIM activated by default, so in case you pick a semi-dedicated hosting package and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be created automatically – a private cryptographic key on our email servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the Domain Name System. As the protection is set up for a particular domain name, all e-mail addresses created with it will carry a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the messages that you send out may not reach their target address or that someone may fake any of your email addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be very essential when you rely on electronic communication in your business, since your partners and/or clients will be able to distinguish legitimate emails from counterfeit ones.
