DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which hinders email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an e-signature to each message sent from an email address under a specific domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will boost your worldwide web safety greatly and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is genuine. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

If you host a domain in a website hosting account with our company, all the necessary records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be added by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain name in , as long as your domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be generated on our mail servers, while a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically using the TXT record. In this way, you will not need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to make use of all the benefits of this validation system – your email messages will be sent to any target audience without being rejected and nobody will be able to send emails faking your e-mail addresses. The latter is rather important in case the type of your web presence involves sending out periodic offers or newsletters via email to potential and existing customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is offered by default with any domain that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is actually the public encryption key that confirms if a particular message is legitimate or not. Such a record is created as soon as a new domain is registered in an account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target destination and you will not need to worry about unauthorized individuals spoofing your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important in case you use email messages to reach your business partners.
