DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding a digital signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will enhance your online safety dramatically and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is legitimate. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be counterfeit may either be marked as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

If you purchase one of the web hosting plans that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you register under your website hosting account, so you will not have to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the emails associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private key will be generated right away on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that the messages are authentic, because the DKIM option makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to forge your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you select one of the semi-dedicated plans that we offer, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain name that you register through your new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our avant-garde cloud platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send out a new email message, it will have our system’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps rising each year and quite often bogus email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues won’t have to bother about that.
