DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each and every email sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with modified content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This method will strengthen your web security dramatically and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send out messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be counterfeit may either be marked as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud hosting that we offer without needing to do anything in particular, as the mandatory records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. In case you send out periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you have written a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers come with DomainKeys Identified Mail activated by default, so in case you pick this type of hosting and you add a domain using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the validation system will be created automatically – a private encryption key on our email servers for the e-signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the global DNS system. Since the DKIM protection is set up for a given domain, all email addresses created with it will have a signature, so you will not need to worry that the email messages that you send may not be delivered to 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 in case you use e-communication in your business, as your colleagues and/or clients will be able to distinguish authentic email messages from fake ones.
