DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is done by adding an electronic signature to each email sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is generated based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the SMTP server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with modified content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This method will boost your worldwide web security markedly and you’ll know for sure that any email message sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send out emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such email messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting
When you purchase any of the web hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled by default for any domain name that you register under your web hosting account, so you will not have to create 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 MX and NS resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private key will be issued instantly on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All email addresses created with this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will know that the messages are legitimate, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to forge your addresses.
