DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an authentication system used to certify that an e-mail has been sent by an authenticated server or person. An e-signature is added to the email’s header by using a private encryption key. When the message is received, a public key that’s 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 principal function of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to hinder the widespread spam and scam emails, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If an email message is sent from an email address claiming to belong to your bank or financial institution, for instance, but the signature does not correspond, you will either not receive the email message at all, or you will get it with a notification that most likely it’s not a legitimate one. It depends on email service providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an additional layer of protection when you communicate with your business allies, for instance, since they can see that all the email messages that you send are genuine and haven’t been meddled with in the meantime.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud website hosting that we offer without the need to do anything specific, because the necessary records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. If you send periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they will always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve written a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you pick one of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer, you will be able to use DKIM protection with any domain name that you add to your brand-new account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform will set up all the compulsory records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send out a new message, it will carry our platform’s electronic signature. The number of spam emails keeps increasing each year and quite often spoofed email addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t have to worry about that.
