DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding a digital signature to every message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will enhance your worldwide web security noticeably and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to handle such messages.

If you host a domain in a cloud website hosting account with us, all the necessary records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be added by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, on the condition that your domain also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be generated on our mail servers, while a public key will be added to the Domain Name System automatically using the TXT record. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually and you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of this validation system – your messages will reach any target audience without being rejected and nobody will be able to send emails faking your addresses. The latter is very important if the nature of your online presence suggests sending out periodic offers or newsletters via email to prospective and current customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The domain must use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed by us and in case this precondition is answered, a private key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be published to the global DNS database by a special TXT record. All addresses that you set up using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any address. Both you and your partners or clients can benefit from this service, since it will ensure a higher safety level for your electronic communication.
