DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email validation system used to prove that an email has been sent by an authenticated email server or individual. A digital signature is added to the message’s header by using a private encryption key. When the email is received, a public key that’s available in the global Domain Name System is used to confirm who exactly sent it and whether the content has been altered in some way. The fundamental job of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to obstruct the widely spread scam and spam email messages, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If an email message is sent from an email address claiming to belong to your bank or financial institution, for example, but the signature does not match, you will either not get the email at all, or you’ll get it with a warning note that most probably it is not genuine. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails the signature check. DKIM will also provide you with an extra layer of protection when you communicate with your business associates, for instance, as they can see for themselves that all the messages that you send are authentic and haven’t been modified in the meantime.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared web hosting plans that we are offering without doing anything specific, as the necessary records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send out regular messages to customers or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you’ve written a certain email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer, you will be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain name that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual setup, as our advanced cloud platform will create all the required records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain name, as this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so every time you send a new email, it will carry our system’s e-signature. The number of junk emails keeps rising every year and very frequently forged email addresses are used, but if you use our web hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues won’t need to bother about that.
