DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each email message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that is available on the sending server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will increase your web security dramatically and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

If you buy any of the Linux shared web hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain that you add to your account, so you will not have to create any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the emails related to this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private encryption key will be created instantly on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All email addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will be sure that they are genuine, as the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you opt for any of the semi-dedicated hosting offered by us, you’ll be able to use the DKIM protection service with any domain that you register through your brand-new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual setup, as our high-tech cloud hosting platform will create all the necessary records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain name, as this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send out a new email, it will carry our platform’s digital signature. The number of spam emails keeps increasing each year and very frequently phony email addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues won’t have to worry about that.
