DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which obstructs email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each email message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This method will boost your online safety noticeably and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

If you host a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, all the compulsory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be created by default. This will happen once you add the domain in , provided that your domain also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be created on our email servers, while a public key will be added to the Domain Name System automatically using the TXT resource record. In this way, you will not need to do anything manually and you will be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this validation system – your email messages will reach any audience without being denied and no one will be able to send out emails forging your e-mail addresses. The latter is really important in case the nature of your worldwide web presence involves sending regular offers or newsletters via email to potential and current clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is included by default with any domain name 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 created, which is actually the public key that confirms if a particular email is authentic or not. Such a record is created once a brand new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated server account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target readers and you will not have to worry about unauthorized people spoofing your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something pretty important if you use email messages to communicate with your business associates.
