DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is generated based on a private key that is available on the SMTP mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This method will enhance your web security enormously and you will be sure that any email sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be phony may either be flagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

If you purchase any of the shared website hosting plans that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated by default for any domain that you add to your website hosting account, so you will not have to set up any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private key will be created instantly on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All addresses set up using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that they are legitimate, because the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unsolicited people to spoof your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you opt for any of the Linux semi-dedicated plans offered by our company, you will be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you add to your new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our outstanding cloud web hosting platform will create all the needed records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send a new email, it will carry our system’s digital signature. The number of spam email messages continues to grow each year and rather frequently bogus email addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not need to worry about that.
