DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each email sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is published based on a private key that is available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will enhance your web security considerably and you’ll know for sure that any message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be fake may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to handle such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get one of the Linux cloud website hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated by default for any domain that you add to your web hosting account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be created instantly on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All email addresses set up with this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will know that the messages are authentic, because the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unsolicited people to spoof your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All needed DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to get a semi-dedicated plan, you will not have to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain must use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed by our company and in case this prerequisite is met, a private key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be added to the DNS system by a special TXT record. All addresses that you set up with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to forge any address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can benefit from this service, since it will guarantee a much higher protection level for your electronic correspondence.
