DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email service providers. This technology will increase your worldwide web safety considerably and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is legitimate. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be bogus may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to handle such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared hosting plans that we are offering without doing anything specific, because the mandatory records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our NS records, a private key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. In case you send periodic emails to clients or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have written a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans come with DKIM enabled by default, so in case you opt for a semi-dedicated plan and you add a domain name using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email validation system will be set up automatically – a private key on our mail servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the Domain Name System. Since the protection is set up for a particular domain, all e-mail addresses created under it will have a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the email messages that you send may not reach their destination email address or that somebody may forge any of your email addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be extremely important if you rely on electronic communication in your business, since your partners and/or clients will be able to distinguish genuine emails from phony ones.
