DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This method will heighten your online safety dramatically and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., is legitimate. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be phony may either be labeled as such or may never appear in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is pre-enabled for all domains that are hosted in a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, so you won’t need to do anything on your end to activate it. The only condition is that the given domain name should be hosted in a hosting account on our platform using our MX and NS resource records, so that the email messages will go through our mail servers. The private key will be generated on the server and the TXT resource record, which contains the public key, will be published to the DNS system automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this feature. The DomainKeys Identified Mail email validation system will permit you to send trustable messages, so if you’re sending a newsletter or offers to customers, for instance, your emails will always reach their target viewers, whereas unsolicited 3rd parties will not be able to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers come with DomainKeys Identified Mail enabled by default, so if you opt for a semi-dedicated server plan and you add a domain using our name servers via 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 digital signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global DNS system. As the protection is set up for a specific domain, all addresses created using it will have a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the messages that you send may not reach their destination address or that someone may forge any of your addresses and try to spam/scam people. This may be really important when you use electronic communication in your business, as your colleagues and/or customers will be able to distinguish genuine email messages from forged ones.
