DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which hinders email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each email message sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will heighten your online safety enormously and you will be sure that any email sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is authentic. When you send out messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to treat such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-enabled for all domains that are hosted in a cloud hosting account on our cloud hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to enable it. The sole condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in a web hosting account on our end using our NS and MX resource records, so that the e-mails will go through our email servers. The private cryptographic key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the Domain Name System automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this feature. The DKIM authentication system will enable you to send credible messages, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target audience, while unsolicited 3rd parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is offered by default with any domain name that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is actually the public encryption key that verifies if a specific email message is legitimate or not. Such a record is created as soon as a brand new domain is added to a semi-dedicated hosting 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 messages will always reach their target readers and you will not need to worry about unsolicited parties spoofing your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something quite important if you use email messages to get in touch with your business collaborators.
