DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each email sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing SMTP 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 spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This method will increase your web safety tremendously and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is legitimate. When you send messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be fake may either be marked as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared website hosting that we offer without having to do anything in particular, since the needed records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an active hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized party will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you’ve written a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers come with DKIM activated by default, so if you opt for a semi-dedicated package and you add a domain using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the authentication system will be created automatically – a private key on our mail servers for the electronic signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global DNS system. Since the DKIM protection is set up for a specific domain, all e-mail addresses created with it will have a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the email messages that you send out may not reach their target address or that somebody may forge any of your email addresses and try to spam/scam people. This may be quite essential if you rely on e-communication in your business, as your colleagues and/or clients will be able to distinguish genuine email messages from false ones.
