DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which stops email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to every email message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outgoing server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will heighten your online safety significantly and you’ll know for sure that any message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be fraudulent may either be labeled as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting
When you order any of the shared website hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated as standard for any domain name that you add to your shard hosting account, so you won’t have to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be generated instantly on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All email addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will be sure that the messages are legitimate, since the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to forge your addresses.
