DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to verify that an e-mail message has been sent by an authenticated email server or person. An e-signature is attached to the message’s header by using a private cryptographic key. When the email is received, a public key that is available in the global Domain Name System is used to check who actually sent it and if the content has been modified in some way. The essential task of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to hamper the widespread 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 doesn’t correspond, you will either not get the email message at all, or you’ll receive it with a warning note that most probably it’s not a genuine one. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message that fails the signature examination. DKIM will also offer you an additional layer of security when you communicate with your business associates, for example, since they can see for themselves that all the e-mails that you send are genuine and haven’t been modified on their way.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux website hosting packages that we offer without needing to do anything specific, since the obligatory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our name server records, a private key will be generated and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send periodic emails to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you’ve sent a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is included by default with any domain name that is added to a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is actually the public encryption key that verifies if a given email is legitimate or not. Such a record is created as soon as a new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, 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 viewers and you won’t have to worry about unsolicited persons spoofing your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something pretty important if you use emails to get in touch with your business partners.
