DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which blocks email addresses 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 address under a specific domain. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that is available on the sending server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will strengthen your web security markedly and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

If you order one of the Linux shared hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled by default for any domain name that you add to your shared account, so you won’t need to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the emails related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be issued immediately on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All addresses created 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 audience and the recipients will be sure that the messages are authentic, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with DKIM enabled by default, so if you choose a semi-dedicated server package and you add a domain using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the authentication system will be created automatically – a private encryption key on our mail servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global DNS system. As the DKIM protection is set up for a given domain, all addresses created with it will carry a signature, so you will not need to worry that the messages that you send out may not be delivered to their destination email address or that someone may fake any of your email addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be quite essential when you rely on electronic communication in your business, since your colleagues and/or clients will be able to distinguish real email messages from false ones.
