DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to every message sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is issued based on a private key that is available on the sending server and it can be validated with 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 spotted by mail service providers. This technology will boost your web security tremendously and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be phony may either be marked as such or may never end up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

When you purchase any of the shared website hosting plans that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated by default for any domain that you register under your account, so you won’t have to set up any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the emails related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private key will be generated momentarily on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All addresses set up with this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that the messages are authentic, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to forge your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature comes by default with any domain name that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is in fact the public key that confirms if a certain email is genuine or not. Such a record is set up as soon as a domain is registered in a semi-dedicated account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target viewers and you will not have to worry about unauthorized parties forging your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something pretty important if you use email messages to get in touch with your business allies.
