DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which hinders email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding a digital signature to each and every email sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This approach will strengthen your web safety greatly and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is genuine. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such email messages.

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared web hosting services that we are offering without having to do anything in particular, since the mandatory records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain in question uses our NS records, a private key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send out periodic emails to customers or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you have composed a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality comes by default with any domain that’s added to 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 record to be created, which is in fact the public key that confirms if a particular email message is genuine or not. Such a record is created once a brand new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated server account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target audience and you will not need to worry about unsolicited parties forging your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is essential if you use emails to get in touch with your business associates.
