DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which prevents email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by adding an e-signature to every email sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is published on the basis of a private key that is available on the outgoing email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will increase your worldwide web safety dramatically and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is a genuine one. When you send out emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fake may either be marked as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain in a cloud hosting account from our company, all the mandatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be set up by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in , provided that your domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be generated on our email servers, whereas a public key will be published to the global DNS system automatically by using the TXT resource record. In this way, you won’t need to do anything manually and you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of this authentication system – your messages will be sent to any target audience without being denied and no one will be able to send out emails forging your e-mail addresses. The latter is truly important in case the nature of your worldwide web presence suggests sending out periodic offers or newsletters via email to potential and existing customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting come with DomainKeys Identified Mail enabled by default, so in case you opt for a semi-dedicated server package and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the validation system will be created automatically – a private encryption key on our mail servers for the digital signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global DNS database. Since the protection is set up for a particular domain, all e-mail addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you won’t need to worry that the messages that you send out may not be delivered to their target address or that someone may spoof any of your addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be very important in case you rely on email communication in your business, as your associates and/or clients will be able to distinguish genuine emails from counterfeit ones.
