DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a particular domain. The signature is published based on a private key that is available on the SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be spotted by email providers. This method will increase your online safety considerably and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host a domain name in a cloud web hosting account from us, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be set up by default. This will happen the moment you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided that the domain also uses our NS records. A private encryption key will be created on our mail servers, whereas a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System automatically by using the TXT record. In this way, you won’t need to do anything manually and you will be able to make use of all the benefits of this validation system – your email messages will reach any target destination without being disallowed and nobody will be able to send emails forging your email addresses. The latter is very important if the nature of your Internet presence involves sending periodic newsletters or offers via email to prospective and current customers.
