DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by adding a digital signature to each message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will increase your online security noticeably and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send 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 fake may either be tagged as such or may never reach the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

In case you host a domain in a cloud hosting account from our company, all the necessary records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be added by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain name in , on the condition that the domain also uses our NS resource records. A private encryption key will be created on our email servers, whereas a public key will be published to the DNS system automatically by using the TXT resource record. In this way, you won’t have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this email validation system – your emails will be sent to any destination without being discarded and no one will be able to send messages forging your email addresses. The latter is very important if the nature of your Internet presence suggests sending out regular newsletters or offers via email to prospective and existing customers.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting come with DKIM activated by default, so in case you select a semi-dedicated server plan and you add a domain name using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records needed for the email validation system will be created automatically – a private encryption key on our mail servers for the electronic signature and a TXT resource record carrying the public key for the Domain Name System. Since the protection is set up for a certain domain, all addresses created using it will carry a signature, so you won’t have to worry that the email messages that you send out may not reach their destination address or that somebody may forge any of your addresses and attempt to spam/scam people. This may be really essential if you use email communication in your business, since your partners and/or customers will be able to distinguish authentic email messages from fake ones.
