DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing email server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will heighten your web safety markedly and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is legitimate. When you send email messages, the recipient will also know for 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 reach the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain in a cloud hosting account from us, all the compulsory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be added by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in , on the condition that it also uses our NS records. A private key will be generated on our email servers, whereas a public key will be sent to the global DNS system automatically using the TXT record. Thus, you won’t need to do anything manually and you will be able to take full advantage of all the benefits of this authentication system – your emails will be delivered to any target destination without being denied and nobody will be able to send out email messages faking your addresses. The latter is quite important in case the essence of your worldwide web presence suggests sending out periodic newsletters or offers via email to prospective and existing clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option comes by default with any domain that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that confirms if a certain email is legitimate or not. Such a record is set up the moment a new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target audience and you won’t need to worry about unauthorized parties spoofing your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something very important if you use emails to reach your business collaborators.
