DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching a digital signature to every email message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This technology will strengthen your web safety considerably and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be 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 reach the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud hosting that we offer without needing to do anything in particular, because the necessary records for using this email validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send out periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have written a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All necessary DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to order a semi-dedicated package, you will not have to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain name must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed on our end and as long as this condition is answered, a private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be added to the Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can take advantage of this feature, as it will guarantee a much higher security level for your online correspondence.
