DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an e-signature to each email sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This technology will increase your online security substantially and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is an authentic one. When you send messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

When you purchase any of the cloud website hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain that you register under your web hosting 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-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be created straight away on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All addresses set up with this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that the messages are authentic, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to forge your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you opt for one of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer, you will be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud platform will create all the required records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so every time you send out a new message, it will have our system’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk emails continues to increase each year and quite frequently fake email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or partners won’t have to worry about that.
