DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will enhance your worldwide web security immensely and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to treat such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is enabled by default for all domain names that are hosted in a hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to turn it on. The only requirement is that the particular domain name should be hosted in a hosting account on our end using our NS and MX resource records, so that the email messages will go through our email servers. The private encryption key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS system automatically, so you won’t need to do anything manually on your end in order to enable this feature. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email authentication system will permit you to send out trustable e-mails, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for instance, your emails will always reach their target viewers, whereas unauthorized third parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting come with DomainKeys Identified Mail enabled by default, so in case you select 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 email authentication system will be set up automatically – a private encryption key on our email servers for the e-signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global DNS database. Since the DKIM protection is set up for a particular domain name, all addresses created under it will carry a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the emails that you send out may not reach their destination address or that somebody may spoof any of your addresses and try to scam/spam people. This may be very important in case you rely on email communication in your business, since your colleagues and/or clients will be able to distinguish legitimate email messages from false ones.
