DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to every email sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is generated based on a private key that is available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This method will boost your worldwide web security greatly and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is an authentic one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be fake may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

When you get one of the shared website hosting plans that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated as standard for any domain that you register under your website hosting account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be issued instantly on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will be sure that the messages are legitimate, because the DKIM functionality makes it impossible for unsolicited people to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All necessary DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to order a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not have to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain should use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed on our end and provided that this condition is met, a private encryption key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be added to the Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you set up using the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any address. Both you and your associates or customers can benefit from this service, since it will guarantee a higher level of security for your online communication.
