DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed 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 given domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This approach will boost your web security markedly and you’ll know for sure that any email sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., is legitimate. When you send messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fake may either be tagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

If you obtain any of the Linux cloud web hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated as standard for any domain name that you add to your shared website hosting account, so you will not have to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be generated instantaneously on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All addresses set up with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that they are legitimate, because the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unauthorized people to forge your addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, you will be able to use the DKIM protection service with any domain that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our outstanding cloud platform will create all the obligatory records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send a new message, it will have our platform’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages continues to grow each year and quite often bogus addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not need to worry about that.
