DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which hinders email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each email message sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is created based on a private cryptographic key that’s available on the outgoing email server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This technology will heighten your worldwide web safety immensely and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business associate, a banking institution, and so on, is authentic. When you send emails, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never reach the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared website hosting plans that we offer without having to do anything specific, because the required records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain name in question uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send out regular messages to clients or business collaborators, they will always be received and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you have sent a certain message.
