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 tampered with. This is achieved by attaching an electronic signature to each and every message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is created based on a private key that’s available on the outgoing mail server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with altered content or a forged sender can be identified by email providers. This technology will increase your online security significantly and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a bank, etc., is an authentic one. When you send 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 fake may either be marked as such or may never reach the recipient’s mailbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to cope with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

When you obtain one of the Linux cloud hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail option will be activated as standard for any domain that you add to your web hosting account, so you will not have to set up any records or to activate anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud hosting platform), a private key will be generated right away on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. All addresses set up using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will be sure that they are legitimate, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail option makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to forge your addresses.
