DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each email message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that is available on the outgoing mail server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be identified by mail service providers. This technology will boost your online safety dramatically and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be bogus may either be flagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to handle such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

When you get any of the Linux cloud website hosting service that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated by default for any domain that you add to your shared web hosting account, so you won’t need to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private encryption key will be created right away on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All email addresses set up with this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that they are legitimate, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to spoof your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain that you add to your new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our innovative cloud web hosting platform will set up all the required records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send out a new message, it will have our system’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps rising every year and quite frequently phony email addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t need to worry about that.
