DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the SMTP mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with modified content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will strengthen your web security enormously and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be phony may either be marked as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

If you host a domain in a shared hosting account from us, all the necessary records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be created by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided that the domain also uses our NS records. A private key will be created on our email servers, while a public key will be added to the Domain Name System automatically by using the TXT resource record. Thus, you will not need to do anything manually and you will be able to make use of all the benefits of this email validation system – your emails will be delivered to any target audience without being denied and nobody will be able to send messages forging your addresses. The latter is rather important if the essence of your worldwide web presence suggests sending out regular offers or newsletters via email to prospective and existing customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with DKIM activated by default, so if you pick a semi-dedicated server plan and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be created automatically – a private encryption key on our mail servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global Domain Name System. Since the protection is set up for a specific domain name, all addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you will not have to worry that the email messages that you send out may not reach their destination address or that someone may forge any of your email addresses and try to scam/spam people. This may be quite important if you rely on electronic communication in your business, since your partners and/or customers will be able to distinguish authentic emails from forged ones.
