DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which prevents email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to every email sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach 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 out emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux shared website hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything specific, as the necessary records for using this validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send regular messages to clients or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized party will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you’ve sent a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All compulsory DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to buy a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not need to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed on our end and as long as this requirement is answered, a private key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the global DNS database by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any email address. Both you and your partners or customers can benefit from this option, as it will ensure a higher level of security for your email correspondence.
