DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email authentication system used to verify that an email message has been sent by an authenticated person or server. An electronic signature is attached to the email message’s header using a private cryptographic key. When the email message is received, a public key that’s available in the global DNS database is used to validate who exactly sent it and whether its content has been changed in any way. The chief function of DKIM is to obstruct the widespread scam and spam emails, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If a message is sent from an email address claiming to belong to your bank, for instance, but the signature does not correspond, you will either not get the email at all, or you’ll get it with a warning notice that most likely it is not a genuine one. It depends on email providers what exactly will happen with an email message that fails to pass the signature test. DKIM will also supply you with an added layer of safety when you communicate with your business allies, for instance, as they can see that all the e-mails that you send are genuine and have not been meddled with in the meantime.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared hosting plans that we offer without needing to do anything specific, since the mandatory records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send out periodic emails to customers or business associates, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you’ve composed a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you opt for one of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer, you will be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain name that you register through your brand-new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our innovative cloud hosting platform will set up all the needed records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, as this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so every time you send a new message, it will carry our platform’s digital signature. The number of spam emails continues to rise every year and rather often forged email addresses are used, but if you make use of our hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not have to bother about that.
