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 modified. This is done by adding an e-signature to every email sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is created based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outbound email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will heighten your worldwide web security significantly and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is authentic. When you send messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be forged may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, based on how the given provider has decided to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

If you get one of the web hosting plans that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be enabled by default for any domain name that you register under your shared account, so you will not need to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the email messages related to this domain will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private key will be issued instantly on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All addresses created using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will be sure that they are genuine, as the DKIM option makes it impossible for unauthorized individuals to forge your e-mail addresses.
