DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will enhance your online safety considerably and you will be sure that any message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send out emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be forged may either be marked as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

If you get one of the Linux hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated by default for any domain that you add to your account, so you will not have to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS records (so that the email messages associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private encryption key will be issued instantly on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that the messages are authentic, as the DKIM functionality makes it impossible for unsolicited people to forge your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you select any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company, you’ll be able to use DKIM protection with any domain that you register through your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual setup, as our outstanding cloud web hosting platform will set up all the compulsory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT record to be set up for the domain name, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send out a new email, it will include our platform’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk emails keeps growing each year and quite often false email addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t need to worry about that.
