DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email validation system used to prove that an e-mail has been sent by an authenticated server or person. An electronic signature is attached to the message’s header using a private encryption key. When the email is received, a public key that is available in the global DNS database is used to confirm who exactly sent it and whether its content has been changed in some way. The prime job of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to stop the widespread scam and spam email messages, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If an email message is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank, for instance, but the signature doesn’t correspond, you will either not receive the email at all, or you will get it with a warning notice that most probably it’s not a legitimate one. It depends on email providers what exactly will happen with an email that fails the signature examination. DKIM will also provide you with an additional safety layer when you communicate with your business partners, for example, as they can see that all the email messages that you exchange are legitimate and have not been meddled with in the meantime.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud website hosting packages that we are offering without having to do anything in particular, because the obligatory records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our NS 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 Domain Name System. In case you send out periodic emails to customers or business associates, they will always be received and no unsolicited individual will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve written a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is included by default with any domain that is registered through 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 system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is in fact the public encryption key that confirms if a certain email is authentic or not. Such a record is created once a brand new domain is added to a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target audience and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited individuals forging your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something very important in case you use emails to contact your business allies.
