DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding an e-signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is published based on a private key that’s available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will boost your web security substantially and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send out emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fake may either be tagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux hosting that we offer without needing to do anything in particular, as the obligatory records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. In case you send out regular emails to clients or business allies, they will always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have composed a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All obligatory DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to get a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not need to set up anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name must use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed by us and provided that this condition is satisfied, a private encryption key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you create using the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can take advantage of this service, since it will guarantee a much higher level of safety for your email communication.
