DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which stops email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to every message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing email server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will strengthen your web safety immensely and you will be sure that any email sent from a business partner, a bank, and so on, is genuine. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for 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 receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you host a domain in a cloud web hosting account from our company, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be added by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, as long as the domain also uses our NS resource records. A private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers, whereas a public key will be sent to the DNS system automatically by using the TXT resource record. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually and you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of this authentication system – your messages will reach any destination without being rejected and nobody will be able to send emails forging your email addresses. The latter is pretty important if the type of your online presence involves sending periodic offers or newsletters via email to potential and existing clients.
