DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to certify that an e-mail message has been sent by an authorized person or mail server. An e-signature is attached to the message’s header by using a private key. When the email is received, a public key that is available in the global Domain Name System is used to verify who exactly sent it and whether the content has been modified in some way. The chief task of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to impede the widespread scam and spam email messages, as it makes it impossible to forge 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 receive the message at all, or you will get it with a warning alert that most likely it is not legitimate. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message that fails to pass the signature check. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an additional layer of protection when you communicate with your business allies, for example, since they can see for themselves that all the e-mails that you exchange are legitimate and haven’t been manipulated on their way.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared hosting plans that we are offering without the need to do anything specific, because the necessary records for using this email validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send periodic messages to customers or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you’ve composed a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All required DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to buy a semi-dedicated server package, you won’t have 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 resource records to be managed on our end and as long as this precondition is matched, 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 create using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any address. Both you and your associates or customers can benefit from this service, as it will ensure a higher level of security for your electronic correspondence.
