DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that is available on the outgoing mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web security considerably and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never end up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared hosting packages that we’re offering without having to do anything in particular, because the necessary records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send out regular messages to clients or business collaborators, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have sent a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated packages come with DomainKeys Identified Mail activated by default, so in case you opt for a semi-dedicated server package and you add a domain using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be created automatically – a private encryption key on our email servers for the digital signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the Domain Name System. Since the protection is set up for a given domain, all email addresses created under it will have a signature, so you will not need to worry that the messages that you send out may not reach their destination email address or that somebody may spoof any of your email addresses and try to scam/spam people. This may be really important in case you use electronic communication in your business, since your partners and/or clients will be able to distinguish legitimate messages from fake ones.
