DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to every message sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web safety substantially and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be fraudulent may either be marked as such or may never end up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is pre-activated for all domain names that are hosted in a web hosting account on our cloud web hosting platform, so you will not need to do anything yourself to enable it. The sole requirement is that the particular domain should be hosted in a website hosting account on our end using our MX and NS records, so that the e-mails will go through our mail servers. The private cryptographic key will be created on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global DNS database automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email validation system will allow you to send out trustworthy e-mails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to clients, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target viewers, whereas unauthorized 3rd parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is included by default with any domain that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that confirms if a given message is genuine or not. This record is set up when a brand new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your messages will always reach their target destination and you won’t need to worry about unauthorized people spoofing your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something pretty important if you use email messages to get in touch with your business associates.
