DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which prevents email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to every email message sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is generated based on a private key that is available on the SMTP mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will boost your worldwide web security significantly and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business associate, 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 fraudulent may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

If you order any of the shared hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled by default for any domain that you add to your shared account, so you won’t have to create any records or to enable 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 email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private encryption key will be issued right away on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All email addresses created using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will know that they are legitimate, since the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to forge your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All needed DKIM records will be set up 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 purchase a semi-dedicated plan, you will not have to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain name should use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed on our end and provided that this requirement is answered, a private encryption key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the DNS system by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you set up using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any address. Both you and your partners or clients can benefit from this option, as it will ensure a higher protection level for your e-communication.
