DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which hinders email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each and every email message sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email with modified content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email providers. This approach will boost your worldwide web safety considerably and you will be sure that any email sent from a business ally, a bank, 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 message that appears to be counterfeit may either be marked as such or may never show up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
If you order one of the hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be activated as standard for any domain name that you add to your website hosting account, so you won’t need to create any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private encryption key will be generated right away on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All addresses created using this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send emails such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that the messages are legitimate, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to spoof your e-mail addresses.
