DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to every message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This method will increase your web safety considerably and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be counterfeit may either be flagged as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

If you host a domain name in a shared website hosting account from our company, all the compulsory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be added by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, on the condition that the domain also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be generated on our email servers, while a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System automatically by using the TXT resource record. In this way, you will not need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to take full advantage of all the benefits of this authentication system – your messages will be delivered to any target audience without being denied and no one will be able to send out emails forging your email addresses. The latter is very important if the essence of your web presence suggests sending regular newsletters or offers via email to prospective and existing clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you pick one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by our company, you will be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you add to your new account without any manual setup, as our cutting-edge cloud platform will set up all the needed records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send out a new message, it will carry our platform’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk emails keeps increasing each year and quite often spoofed addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t have to bother about that.
