DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which hinders email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each email message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is created based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email providers. This technology will boost your online safety greatly and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is legitimate. When you send messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be phony may either be marked as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

If you order any of the web hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you add to your shared website hosting account, so you won’t have to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private encryption key will be created instantaneously on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All email addresses set up using this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will know that the messages are genuine, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unauthorized people to forge your email addresses.
