DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each message sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is created based on a private key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with edited content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web safety considerably and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is an authentic one. When you send messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fake may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to treat such messages.

You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux shared hosting packages that we are offering without needing to do anything specific, as the mandatory records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain uses our NS records, a private key will be generated and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send out regular 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 seem like you’ve written a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All required DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to get a semi-dedicated server plan, you won’t have to set up anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain name must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed on our end and provided that this requirement is fulfilled, a private key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be added to the DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you set up using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any email address.
