DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will heighten your web security noticeably and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

If you purchase any of the web hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be activated as standard for any domain that you register under your hosting account, so you will not need to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private key will be created momentarily on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All addresses created using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will be sure that they are genuine, since the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unsolicited people to spoof your email addresses.
