DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email validation system used to verify that an e-mail has been sent by an authorized mail server or person. An e-signature is added to the header of the email message by using a private cryptographic key. When the email message is received, a public key that is available in the global DNS database is used to check who exactly sent it and whether the content has been altered in any way. The prime job of DKIM is to obstruct the widely spread spam and scam email messages, 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 match, you will either not receive the message at all, or you will get it with a warning alert that most likely it’s not authentic. It depends on email providers what exactly will happen with an email message that fails the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an extra protection layer when you communicate with your business allies, for instance, as they can see for themselves that all the e-mails that you send are authentic and haven’t been tampered with in the meantime.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud plans that we’re offering without having to do anything specific, since the needed records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. In case you send out regular emails to customers or business partners, they will always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve written a given email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose one of the semi-dedicated plans that we are offering, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our leading-edge cloud platform will set up all the needed records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain name, 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 email servers, so anytime you send a new email, it will include our platform’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk emails keeps growing each year and rather frequently spoofed email addresses are used, but if you use our web hosting services, you and your clients or associates won’t need to worry about that.
