DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which stops email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that’s available on the SMTP email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This method will strengthen your worldwide web security greatly and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is legitimate. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

When you purchase any of the Linux cloud hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled by default for any domain name that you register under your account, so you will not have to create any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private encryption key will be issued straight away on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All email addresses created with this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that they are legitimate, because the DKIM option makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to spoof your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All mandatory DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to purchase a semi-dedicated package, you won’t need to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed on our end and in case this condition is matched, a private encryption key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be sent to the DNS database by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any email address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can take advantage of this service, as it will guarantee a higher level of safety for your email communication.
