DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to every message sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is created based on a private key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will enhance your online security considerably and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

When you order any of the Linux website hosting packages that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled by default for any domain that you add to your web hosting account, so you won’t have to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private encryption key will be generated immediately on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All addresses created using this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will be sure that the messages are genuine, as the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you choose any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages offered by us, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain name that you add to your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our top-notch cloud hosting platform will set up all the required records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT record to be set up for the domain name, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send out a new email, it will include our platform’s e-signature. The number of junk messages keeps increasing each year and very often bogus email addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues will not have to worry about that.
