DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each email message sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that is available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web safety markedly and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be counterfeit may either be marked as such or may never show up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans come with DomainKeys Identified Mail activated by default, so if you pick a semi-dedicated plan and you add a domain using our name servers through your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the email validation system will be created automatically – a private key on our mail servers for the e-signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the DNS system. As the protection is set up for a given domain, all e-mail addresses created under it will have a signature, so you will not need to worry that the messages that you send out may not be delivered to their target email address or that somebody may fake any of your email addresses and attempt to scam/spam people. This may be quite important in case you rely on e-communication in your business, as your associates and/or customers will be able to distinguish genuine messages from counterfeit ones.
