DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an authentication system used to certify that an e-mail has been sent by an authenticated individual or email server. An electronic signature is added to the header of the message by using a private encryption key. When the message is received, a public key that’s available in the global DNS database is used to check who exactly sent it and whether the content has been modified in some way. The essential function of DKIM is to avert the widespread spam and scam email messages, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If an email message is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank, for example, but the signature does not correspond, you will either not receive the message at all, or you’ll receive it with a notification that most likely it’s not an authentic one. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email that fails the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an additional layer of safety when you communicate with your business associates, for instance, as they can see that all the messages that you exchange are legitimate and have not been meddled with on their way.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud web hosting packages that we are offering without having to do anything in particular, as the compulsory records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated 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 regular email messages to clients or business associates, they will always be received and no unauthorized party will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you have written a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is offered by default with any domain name that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is in fact the public key that verifies if a specific email is authentic or not. This record is created the moment a new domain name is added to a semi-dedicated server account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target audience and you will not have to worry about unsolicited persons forging your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is essential when you use email messages to contact your business partners.
