DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is issued based on 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. In this way, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This approach will increase your web security dramatically and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never end up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared hosting that we’re offering without needing to do anything specific, because the obligatory records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send out periodic email messages to clients or business associates, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you’ve composed a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering, you’ll be able to use DKIM protection with any domain name that you register through your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual setup, as our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform will set up all the required records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource 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 mail servers, so whenever you send a new message, it will carry our platform’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk emails continues to increase every year and quite often bogus email addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not need to bother about that.
