DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which hinders email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each email sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is issued based on a private encryption 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. In this way, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will heighten your worldwide web safety greatly and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux website hosting service that we are offering without doing anything specific, since the required records for using this email validation system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain name uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send periodic emails to customers or business allies, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you have composed a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature comes by default with any domain name that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is actually the public key that verifies if a specific email message is legitimate or not. Such a record is created once a brand-new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target viewers and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited individuals forging your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something really important if you use emails to touch base with your business allies.
