DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an authentication system used to verify that an e-mail message has been sent by an authorized server or person. A digital signature is attached to the header of the message by using a private encryption key. When the email message is received, a public key that’s available in the global Domain Name System is used to check who exactly sent it and if the content has been changed in some way. The prime function of DKIM is to block the widely spread scam and spam email messages, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If an email 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 get the email message at all, or you’ll get it with an alert that most likely it is not a legitimate one. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message that fails to pass the signature check. DKIM will also offer you an added security layer when you communicate with your business partners, for instance, as they can see for themselves that all the e-mails that you send are genuine and have not been meddled with in the meantime.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared services that we’re offering without having to do anything in particular, since the mandatory records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an active web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our NS records, a private key will be issued 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 out regular email messages to clients or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve composed a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All necessary DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to purchase a semi-dedicated plan, you won’t have to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by us and as long as this requirement is matched, a private key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any email address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can benefit from this option, as it will guarantee a higher level of safety for your e-correspondence.
