DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to every email sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is issued based on a private key that is available on the SMTP server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This method will increase your online security tremendously and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fraudulent may either be marked as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

When you get any of the web hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled as standard for any domain that you add to your hosting account, so you will not need to set up any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the emails related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private cryptographic key will be created straight away on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All email addresses set up using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that the messages are genuine, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to forge your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is offered by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS 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 key that confirms if a specific email message is legitimate or not. Such a record is set up once a brand-new domain is added to a semi-dedicated server account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your messages will always reach their target viewers and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited parties using your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something really important when you use emails to reach your business collaborators.
