DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to every email message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This method will heighten your online security markedly and you will be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never end up in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared hosting service that we offer without doing anything specific, because the needed records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an active web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain name uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send out periodic emails to customers or business allies, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you have composed a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated service come with DomainKeys Identified Mail enabled by default, so in case you pick this type of hosting and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email validation system will be created automatically – a private key on our mail servers for the e-signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global DNS system. As the protection is set up for a certain domain, all email addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you won’t need to worry that the messages that you send out may not reach their destination email address or that somebody may spoof any of your addresses and try to spam/scam people. This may be really essential if you rely on electronic communication in your business, since your partners and/or clients will be able to distinguish authentic messages from false ones.
