DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is published based on a private key that is available on the sending server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will boost your web security enormously and you’ll be sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send 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 bogus may either be flagged as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

If you purchase any of the shared web hosting service that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated by default for any domain that you add to your hosting account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the emails related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be issued straight away 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 DKIM, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will know that the messages are legitimate, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to spoof your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is included by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our system. 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 certain message is authentic or not. This record is created once a brand new domain is added to a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target destination and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized individuals spoofing your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something quite important in case you use emails to communicate with your business associates.
