DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each email sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private encryption key that’s available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email with edited content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will enhance your web safety significantly and you will be sure that any email sent from a business ally, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be bogus may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting
If you purchase any of the shared website hosting plans that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled by default for any domain name that you add to your website hosting account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be generated right away on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All addresses set up with this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will know that the messages are authentic, as the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to spoof your e-mail addresses.
