DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each and every email sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is issued based on a private key that is available on the SMTP email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will heighten your worldwide web security substantially and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be forged may either be flagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

When you order any of the Linux cloud website hosting services that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled by default for any domain name that you add to your shared account, so you won’t need to create any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private key will be generated instantaneously on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All email addresses created using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that they are legitimate, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited persons to forge your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All needed DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to get a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not have to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed on our end and if this condition is met, a private encryption key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be sent to the global DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create using the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to forge any address. Both you and your partners or clients can take advantage of this option, since it will guarantee a higher level of safety for your electronic communication.
