DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which prevents email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is generated based on a private key that’s available on the outbound mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with modified content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This method will increase your online security considerably and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send email messages, 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 tagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is enabled by default for all domain names that are hosted in a cloud website hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to turn it on. The only requirement is that the given domain should be hosted in an account on our end using our NS and MX resource records, so that the e-mails will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS system automatically, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this feature. The DKIM email validation system will enable you to send out trustable e-mails, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for example, your emails will always reach their target destination, whereas unauthorized third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is offered by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is actually the public cryptographic key that verifies if a given email message is authentic or not. This record is set up when a domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target readers and you won’t need to worry about unsolicited individuals forging your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something really important if you use email messages to touch base with your business associates.
