DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being tampered with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each email message sent from an address under a certain domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will strengthen your online security immensely and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send 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 phony may either be marked as such or may never end up in the recipient’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

If you buy one of the cloud services that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you register under your web hosting account, so you will not need to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the emails associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be created immediately on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All email addresses set up with this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will know that the messages are authentic, because the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to forge your email addresses.
