DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the SMTP mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This approach will enhance your web security enormously and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is legitimate. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fake may either be marked as such or may never end up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

If you host a domain in a shared hosting account from our company, all the obligatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be added by default. This will happen once you add the domain name in , on the condition that your domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be created on our mail servers, while a public key will be added to the global Domain Name System automatically using the TXT record. Thus, you will not need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of this authentication system – your messages will reach any audience without being rejected and no one will be able to send email messages forging your email addresses. The latter is very important if the essence of your online presence involves sending out regular newsletters or offers via email to potential and existing customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is included by default with any domain that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is actually the public key that confirms if a particular email message is authentic or not. This record is created the moment a brand new domain name is added to an account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target audience and you will not need to worry about unauthorized people forging your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something really important when you use emails to touch base with your business partners.
