DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to certify that an e-mail message has been sent by an authorized person or server. A digital signature is added to the header of the email message by using a private cryptographic key. When the email is received, a public key that’s available in the global DNS database is used to confirm who actually sent it and whether its content has been edited in any way. The primary job of DKIM is to avert the widely spread scam and spam 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 or financial institution, for example, but the signature doesn’t match, you will either not get the email at all, or you’ll receive it with a warning that most likely it’s not legitimate. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email that fails to pass the signature examination. DKIM will also give you an added security layer when you communicate with your business associates, for example, as they can see that all the e-mails that you exchange are genuine and haven’t been manipulated in the meantime.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting
You will be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each web hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything specific, as the required records for using this validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be generated and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send periodic email messages to customers or business allies, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your address and make it look like you’ve written a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you opt for one of the semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual setup, as our cutting-edge cloud platform will set up all the required records automatically, provided 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 key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send a new email, it will carry our platform’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps rising each year and rather often bogus addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not need to worry about that.
