DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which prevents email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the SMTP email server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will enhance your worldwide web safety dramatically and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared website hosting that we offer without needing to do anything specific, because the needed records for using this validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you’ve sent a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option comes by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is actually the public key that confirms if a specific email is legitimate or not. Such a record is set up as soon as a brand-new domain is registered in an account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your messages will always reach their target audience and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized persons using your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is essential in case you use emails to communicate with your business partners.
