DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an authentication system used to confirm that an e-mail message has been sent by an authenticated person or email server. An electronic signature is attached to the header of the email message using a private cryptographic key. When the email is received, a public key that’s available in the global DNS database is used to confirm who actually sent it and whether the content has been altered in any way. The essential function of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to hinder the widely spread scam and spam emails, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If an email is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank, for instance, but the signature does not match, you will either not get the message at all, or you will receive it with a notification that most probably it’s not an authentic one. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails to pass the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also supply you with an additional safety layer when you communicate with your business associates, for instance, since they can see for themselves that all the emails that you exchange are authentic and have not been tampered with in the meantime.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud web hosting that we are offering without the need to do anything in particular, as the necessary records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain name in question uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send periodic messages to clients or business collaborators, they will always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you’ve sent a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All needed DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to get a semi-dedicated hosting package, you won’t need to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed by us and if this precondition is met, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be sent to the DNS database by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any address. Both you and your partners or customers can benefit from this service, as it will ensure a higher level of safety for your email correspondence.
