DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which impedes email headers from being spoofed and email content from being modified. This is done by adding an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outbound SMTP mail server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This technology will heighten your web security immensely and you will know for sure that any e-mail message sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is a genuine one. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be bogus may either be flagged as such or may never end up in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order any of the cloud website hosting that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled as standard for any domain that you add to your website hosting 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-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private encryption key will be issued immediately on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. All email addresses created using this domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, so if you send out emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will know that they are genuine, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to spoof your email addresses.
