DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each email message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This technology will enhance your online safety considerably and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux web hosting that we’re offering without doing anything in particular, as the required records for using this validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send out regular emails to clients or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve written a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you pick any of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our innovative cloud hosting platform will create all the required records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send out a new message, it will have our system’s digital signature. The number of spam messages continues to increase every year and rather often spoofed addresses are used, but if you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not have to bother about that.
