DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding a digital signature to each message sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the SMTP server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with edited content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This approach will heighten your worldwide web safety enormously and you’ll know for sure that any message sent from a business collaborator, a bank, etc., is authentic. When you send email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be phony may either be tagged as such or may never be delivered to the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

If you obtain one of the website 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 won’t have to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our in-house developed 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 created immediately on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that they are genuine, as the DKIM feature makes it impossible for unsolicited people to forge your addresses.
