DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to every message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the sending server and it can be validated with 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 method will heighten your online safety enormously and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never show up in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared hosting that we offer without doing anything in particular, since the compulsory records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send periodic email messages to clients or business collaborators, they will always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have composed a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is included by default with any domain that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is actually the public key that confirms if a specific email message is legitimate or not. This record is set up the moment a new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target viewers and you will not need to worry about unauthorized individuals using your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important in case you use email messages to contact your business allies.
