DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which hinders email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to every email sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be identified by mail service providers. This technology will increase your online security noticeably and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be phony may either be labeled as such or may never reach the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

If you order any of the website hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated by default for any domain name that you register under your website hosting account, so you won’t need to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails related to this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private key will be generated straight away on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All email addresses set up using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that the messages are legitimate, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to forge your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is offered by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that confirms if a certain message is legitimate or not. Such a record is created once a brand-new domain is registered in an account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target viewers and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited individuals forging your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is essential in case you use email messages to touch base with your business associates.
