DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which hinders email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This method will enhance your online safety markedly and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is a genuine one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host a domain name in a cloud website hosting account from our company, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be added by default. This will happen once you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, as long as your domain also uses our NS resource records. A private key will be created on our email servers, while a public key will be published to the Domain Name System automatically by using the TXT resource record. In this way, you won’t need to do anything manually and you will be able to make use of all the benefits of this email authentication system – your emails will reach any target destination without being rejected and nobody will be able to send emails forging your e-mail addresses. The latter is truly important in case the nature of your worldwide web presence suggests sending out periodic offers or newsletters via email to potential and current customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you select one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our innovative cloud platform will create all the compulsory records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain name, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send out a new email, it will include our platform’s digital signature. The number of spam emails continues to increase each year and very often false addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues won’t have to worry about that.
