DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This method will increase your web safety significantly and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send email 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 phony may either be marked as such or may never reach the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You will be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared hosting that we’re offering without doing anything in particular, because the required records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send regular messages to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized party will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you have composed a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All obligatory DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to get a semi-dedicated server plan, you won’t need to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain name should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed by us and as long as this condition is met, a private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be published to the DNS system by a special TXT record. All addresses that you set up with the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can take advantage of this functionality, since it will ensure a higher protection level for your electronic correspondence.
