DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each and every message sent from an address under a given domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outbound SMTP server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will increase your web safety enormously and you’ll be sure that any message sent from a business ally, a bank, and so on, is a legitimate one. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

If you host a domain in a shared hosting account with our company, all the necessary records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be set up by default. This will happen once you add the domain in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided that the domain also uses our NS records. A private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers, while a public key will be sent to the global DNS database automatically using the TXT record. In this way, you won’t have to do anything manually and you will be able to take advantage of all the benefits of this email validation system – your messages will be delivered to any target audience without being disallowed and nobody will be able to send out messages faking your addresses. The latter is rather important in case the nature of your online presence involves sending regular newsletters or offers via email to prospective and existing clients.
