DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is created based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web security substantially and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is legitimate. When you send out emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be forged may either be labeled as such or may never reach the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

If you get one of the cloud hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled by default for any domain that you add to your web hosting account, so you will not have to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the emails related to this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be generated straight away on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All email addresses created with this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that they are legitimate, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to spoof your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All needed DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to buy a semi-dedicated package, you will not have to configure anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain must use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed by us and if this precondition is answered, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be published to the global DNS database by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to forge any email address. Both you and your associates or clients can take advantage of this service, since it will ensure a higher security level for your e-communication.
