DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email validation system used to check that an email has been sent by an authenticated mail server or individual. A digital signature is attached to the email message’s header by using a private encryption key. When the email is received, a public key that is available in the global DNS database is used to check who exactly sent it and if its content has been modified in any way. The essential task of DKIM is to avert the widespread spam and scam 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 example, but the signature does not match, you will either not receive the email message at all, or you’ll get it with a notification that most probably it’s not a genuine one. It depends on email service providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails to pass the signature examination. DKIM will also supply you with an additional layer of security when you communicate with your business associates, for example, as they can see for themselves that all the emails that you send are authentic and have not been meddled with in the meantime.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting
You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each web hosting
that we are offering without the need to do anything specific, since the compulsory records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be generated and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send periodic email messages to clients or business collaborators, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you have written a given message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you choose one of the semi-dedicated hosting
that we are offering, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain that you register through your brand new account without any manual setup, as our outstanding cloud platform will set up all the mandatory records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send out a new email, it will include our platform’s e-signature. The number of junk email messages keeps increasing each year and quite frequently spoofed email addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues will not need to bother about that.
