DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an authentication system used to certify that an email message has been sent by an authorized server or individual. An electronic signature is added to the email message’s header by using a private cryptographic key. When the message is received, a public key that is available in the global DNS database is used to validate who actually sent it and if its content has been modified in any way. The principal function of DKIM is to impede the widespread scam and spam emails, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If an email is sent from an email address claiming to belong to your bank, for example, but the signature does not correspond, you will either not receive the email message at all, or you’ll receive it with a warning that most likely it’s not a legitimate one. It depends on mail service 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 protection when you communicate with your business allies, for instance, since they can see for themselves that all the e-mail messages that you send are authentic and haven’t been tampered with in the meantime.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud web hosting that we are offering without doing anything specific, since the necessary records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. If you send out periodic email messages to customers or business associates, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your address and make it look like you have written a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is offered by default with any domain name that’s added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is actually the public key that verifies if a particular message is authentic or not. This record is set up as soon as a brand-new domain name is added to an account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is created on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your messages will always reach their target audience and you will not have to worry about unauthorized individuals spoofing your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something rather important in case you use emails to reach your business allies.
