DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by adding an e-signature to each and every email message sent from an address under a specific domain. The signature is issued based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outbound SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by email service providers. This method will strengthen your web security tremendously and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send emails, the recipient will also know for 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 reach the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has chosen to deal with such emails.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
When you buy one of the cloud hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature will be activated as standard for any domain that you add to your website hosting account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX records (so that the email messages associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private cryptographic key will be created instantly on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All addresses created with this domain name will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the recipients will be sure that they are genuine, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unauthorized people to forge your email addresses.
