DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each email sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is generated based on a private 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 DNS database. In this way, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web safety markedly and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send out emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be counterfeit may either be flagged as such or may never show up in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a hosting account on our cloud servers, so you will not have to do anything yourself to enable it. The sole condition is that the given domain name should be hosted in a hosting account on our end using our NS and MX 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 record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global DNS system automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this option. The DKIM email authentication system will enable you to send out trustworthy messages, so if you’re sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, while unsolicited 3rd parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is included by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled 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 confirms if a particular email is legitimate or not. Such a record is set up as soon as a brand-new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target destination and you will not have to worry about unsolicited people forging your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important if you use email messages to reach your business associates.
