DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email validation system, which stops email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching a digital signature to every message sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is generated based on a private key that is available on the outbound mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. In this way, any message with altered content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will enhance your web safety tremendously and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is a genuine one. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be forged may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to handle such messages.

The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is actually the public cryptographic key that confirms if a particular email message is authentic or not.

If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target viewers and you will not have to worry about unsolicited parties spoofing your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something really important in case you use emails to communicate with your business partners.
