DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is generated based on a private key that is available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This technology will enhance your worldwide web security enormously and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send out messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be counterfeit may either be marked as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every website hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything in particular, as the needed records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send out regular email messages to clients or business associates, they will always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve written a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is included by default with any domain that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain must 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 resource record to be created, which is in fact the public key that verifies if a particular email is authentic or not. Such a record is created as soon as a brand new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target audience and you will not need to worry about unauthorized persons spoofing your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something really important when you use email messages to contact your business partners.
