DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email authentication system used to confirm that an e-mail has been sent by an authenticated person or server. An e-signature is attached to the header of the email message using a private encryption key. When the email is received, a public key that is available in the global DNS database is used to verify who actually sent it and whether its content has been edited in any way. The fundamental purpose of DKIM is to avert the widely spread scam and spam email messages, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If a message is sent from an 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’ll receive it with a warning that most probably it is not a legitimate one. It depends on email providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails to pass the signature test. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also supply you with an extra layer of protection when you communicate with your business allies, for instance, since they can see for themselves that all the email messages that you send are genuine and haven’t been meddled with in the meantime.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared hosting service that we are offering without the need to do anything specific, since the needed records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain uses our NS records, a private key will be created 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 messages to customers or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you’ve written a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you select any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM protection service with any domain that you register through your new account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud platform will set up all the needed records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send a new email message, it will carry our platform’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages keeps increasing every year and quite frequently counterfeit email addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or partners won’t have to worry about that.
