DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which blocks email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each email message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is generated based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This method will increase your worldwide web safety enormously and you will know for sure that any message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send out emails, the recipient 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 be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-activated for all domains that are hosted in a shared hosting account on our cloud servers, so you won’t need to do anything yourself to activate it. The sole condition is that the particular domain should be hosted in a web hosting account on our platform using our NS and MX records, so that the emails will go through our mail servers. The private encryption key will be generated on the server and the TXT record, which contains the public key, will be published to the global DNS system automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this option. The DKIM authentication system will permit you to send out trustable emails, so if you are sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for instance, your email messages will always reach their target audience, whereas unauthorized third parties won’t be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is included by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It should 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 cryptographic key that verifies if a given message is authentic or not. Such a record is set up when a brand-new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your emails will always reach their target audience and you will not need to worry about unsolicited people using your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important in case you use emails to get in touch with your business allies.
