DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each email sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is published based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web safety considerably and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be counterfeit may either be tagged as such or may never show up in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux shared web hosting that we offer without needing to do anything in particular, because the mandatory records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be generated and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send out periodic messages to customers or business associates, they will always be received and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you have composed a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All required DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to get a semi-dedicated server plan, you won’t have to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name should use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by our company and provided that this condition is answered, a private encryption key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to spoof any address. Both you and your partners or customers can benefit from this feature, as it will ensure a higher level of protection for your electronic communication.
