DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a given domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web safety enormously and you will be sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send out messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be counterfeit may either be marked as such or may never enter the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

When you get any of the Linux shared website hosting packages that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you add to your hosting account, so you will not have to create any records or to enable anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be issued momentarily on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that the messages are legitimate, because the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to spoof your email addresses.
