DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each email sent from an email address under a particular domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web safety greatly and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be fraudulent may either be marked as such or may never end up in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared hosting plans that we offer without doing anything specific, since the needed records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. In case you send regular emails to clients or business allies, they will always be received and no unsolicited individual will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve written a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All required DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to order a semi-dedicated plan, you won’t have to configure anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain name should use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by us and as long as this precondition is fulfilled, a private key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be sent to the DNS system by a special TXT record. All addresses that you set up using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can take advantage of this feature, as it will ensure a much higher level of security for your email communication.
