DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which obstructs email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that is available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with modified content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will increase your online security greatly and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fake may either be flagged as such or may never show up in the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

If you host a domain name in a cloud hosting account with us, all the obligatory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be set up by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain in , on the condition that the domain also uses our NS records. A private encryption key will be generated on our mail servers, whereas a public key will be published to the global DNS database automatically by using the TXT record. Thus, you won’t need to do anything manually and you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of this authentication system – your messages will reach any destination without being denied and no one will be able to send email messages forging your email addresses. The latter is very important if the essence of your worldwide web presence suggests sending periodic newsletters or offers via email to potential and current clients.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is offered by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is actually the public cryptographic key that confirms if a particular message is genuine or not. This record is set up the moment a brand new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target audience and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited persons using your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something rather important in case you use email messages to reach your business collaborators.
