DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching a digital signature to every message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that is available on the sending 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 with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This technology will heighten your online security immensely and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be phony may either be labeled as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared website hosting that we’re offering without needing to do anything specific, since the obligatory records for using this email validation system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain name in question uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send regular messages to clients or business associates, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have sent a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting come with DomainKeys Identified Mail activated by default, so if you opt for a semi-dedicated hosting plan and you add a domain using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be set up automatically – a private encryption key on our mail servers for the electronic signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global Domain Name System. As the DKIM protection is set up for a certain domain, all email addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the email messages that you send out may not be delivered to their destination email address or that someone may spoof any of your addresses and try to scam/spam people. This may be extremely important in case you use email communication in your business, since your colleagues and/or customers will be able to distinguish real email messages from bogus ones.
