DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to every message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that is available on the outbound email server and it can be verified by 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 identified by email providers. This approach will strengthen your worldwide web safety significantly and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is an authentic one. When you send out emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fake may either be labeled as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

When you get one of the shared web hosting service that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated as standard for any domain name that you add to your hosting account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be generated straight away on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All addresses created using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that they are genuine, because the DKIM functionality makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to spoof your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you pick one of the semi-dedicated service that we are offering, you will be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain name that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our outstanding cloud platform will set up all the mandatory records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send out a new email message, it will have our system’s electronic signature. The number of junk emails keeps increasing each year and rather often fake email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t have to bother about that.
