DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is issued based on a private key that is available on the SMTP server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This method will boost your worldwide web safety significantly and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is enabled by default for all domains that are hosted in a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to activate it. The sole condition is that the particular domain name should be hosted in an account on our end using our MX and NS resource records, so that the emails will go through our mail servers. The private key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which includes the public key, will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this feature. The DKIM email validation system will enable you to send trustworthy messages, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for instance, your emails will always reach their target viewers, while unauthorized 3rd parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option comes by default with any domain that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is actually the public cryptographic key that verifies if a certain email is authentic or not. Such a record is created when a brand-new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your messages will always reach their target viewers and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized parties forging your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something very important when you use email messages to contact your business allies.
