DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which prevents email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the sending server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This technology will boost your web safety immensely and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is authentic. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be forged may either be marked as such or may never reach the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase any of the cloud website hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled by default for any domain name that you register under your shared web hosting account, so you won’t have to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private key will be issued instantaneously on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All addresses set up with this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that the messages are legitimate, as the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting services that we’re offering, you will be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain name that you register through your new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our outstanding cloud hosting platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send a new message, it will carry our system’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages continues to increase every year and quite often spoofed addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or partners will not have to bother about that.
