DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding an electronic signature to every message sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that is available on the SMTP email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This method will increase your web safety tremendously and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., is genuine. When you send messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every website hosting that we offer without needing to do anything specific, as the mandatory records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our NS records, a private key will be created and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send out periodic messages to clients or business allies, they will always be received and no unauthorized party will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have sent a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality comes by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. 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 set up, which is in fact the public encryption key that verifies if a given email message is genuine or not. This record is created the moment a brand-new domain is added to an account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target destination and you will not have to worry about unsolicited persons forging your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something very important if you use email messages to communicate with your business collaborators.
