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 manipulated. This is done by adding an e-signature to each and every 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 outgoing server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This method will boost your online security greatly and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is authentic. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be forged may either be labeled as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to treat such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
When you purchase any of the cloud website hosting services that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled by default for any domain that you add to your shared website hosting account, so you won’t have to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the email messages related to this domain will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be generated immediately on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. All addresses created using this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, 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 DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to spoof your addresses.
