DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an e-signature to each message sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is created based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This technology will enhance your web security greatly and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is authentic. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be forged may either be flagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

When you purchase one of the Linux cloud web hosting packages that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled by default for any domain that you add to your shared website hosting account, so you won’t have to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be created right away on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All addresses set up using this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that the messages are authentic, as the DKIM functionality makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to forge your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you select one of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform will create all the necessary records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain, as this is how the public key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send a new email message, it will carry our system’s digital signature. The number of spam email messages continues to grow each year and quite often forged email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your customers or associates will not have to worry about that.
