DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to every email message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is published based on a private key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This approach will enhance your web security greatly and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be fraudulent may either be flagged as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to handle such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

If you obtain any of the Linux shared hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled by default for any domain name that you add to your web hosting account, so you will not need to set up any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be generated instantaneously on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All addresses created using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will know that they are genuine, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All required DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to get a semi-dedicated server plan, you will not have to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed by our company and if this condition is matched, a private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to forge any address. Both you and your associates or clients can benefit from this feature, since it will guarantee a higher level of security for your electronic correspondence.
