DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email headers from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an electronic signature to every message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is generated based on a private key that’s available on the SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any message with modified content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This method will strengthen your online security dramatically and you’ll be sure that any email sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is genuine. When you send 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 fake may either be marked as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each hosting that we are offering without having to do anything specific, since the needed records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain name in question uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send periodic messages to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you have composed a particular email message.
