DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP mail server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This technology will enhance your worldwide web safety tremendously and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send out messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to treat such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud web hosting plans that we’re offering without the need to do anything specific, as the mandatory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send out regular messages to clients or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited party will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is included by default with any domain name that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is actually the public cryptographic key that verifies if a specific message is authentic or not. Such a record is created the moment a brand-new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated server account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target destination and you will not need to worry about unauthorized parties forging your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something really important if you use emails to touch base with your business associates.
