DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to every email message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing email server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This approach will heighten your web security markedly and you will be sure that any message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared website hosting services that we’re offering without doing anything in particular, as the compulsory records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send out periodic messages to clients or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve written a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting services come with DKIM activated by default, so if you select a semi-dedicated server package and you add a domain using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email validation system will be set up automatically – a private cryptographic key on our email servers for the digital signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global Domain Name System. Since the DKIM protection is set up for a certain domain, all addresses created using it will have a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the messages that you send out may not reach their target email address or that somebody may fake any of your email addresses and try to spam/scam people. This may be really essential when you use email communication in your business, as your associates and/or clients will be able to distinguish genuine email messages from phony ones.
