DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which blocks email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to every email message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is generated based on a private key that’s available on the outgoing mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be identified by email service providers. This method will enhance your web safety greatly and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be forged may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the given provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux website hosting that we are offering without having to do anything specific, as the needed records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be issued and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. In case you send periodic email messages to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized party will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you’ve composed a particular email message.
