DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private key that is available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with edited content or a spoofed sender can be identified by mail service providers. This method will enhance your online safety significantly and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., 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 turns out to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never show up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host a domain name in a cloud web hosting account with our company, all the needed records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be set up by default. This will happen once you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, as long as your domain also uses our NS resource records. A private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers, while a public key will be sent to the global DNS system automatically using the TXT resource record. Thus, you will not have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to make use of all the benefits of this email authentication system – your email messages will be delivered to any target audience without being discarded and nobody will be able to send out emails faking your e-mail addresses. The latter is rather important if the essence of your online presence involves sending regular newsletters or offers via email to potential and existing customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All mandatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to buy a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you won’t need to configure anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain should use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed by us and provided that this precondition is satisfied, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be added to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your associates or clients can benefit from this feature, since it will guarantee a much higher level of safety for your electronic communication.
