DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding a digital signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a specific domain name. The signature is published on the basis of a private cryptographic key that is available on the SMTP mail server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will enhance your worldwide web safety considerably and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fraudulent may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

If you host a domain name in a shared hosting account with us, all the compulsory records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be added by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, on the condition that it also uses our NS resource records. A private key will be created on our email servers, while a public key will be sent to the global DNS database automatically by using the TXT record. In this way, you will not have to do anything manually and you will be able to make use of all the benefits of this email authentication system – your emails will reach any target destination without being rejected and no one will be able to send email messages forging your addresses. The latter is pretty important in case the type of your Internet presence involves sending out periodic offers or newsletters via email to prospective and current customers.
