DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to every message sent from an email address under a certain domain name. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that is available on the outgoing mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This method will enhance your online security enormously and you’ll be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never reach the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to treat such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

When you get any of the Linux cloud web hosting packages that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be activated as standard for any domain that you add to your website hosting account, so you will not need to set up 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 resource records (so that the email messages related to this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private key will be created instantly on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All email addresses created with this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will know that the messages are authentic, as the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to forge your e-mail addresses.
