DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to check that an email message has been sent by an authenticated individual or server. A digital signature is attached to the header of the email by using a private cryptographic key. When the email is received, a public key that’s available in the global Domain Name System is used to validate who actually sent it and if the content has been edited in some way. The essential task of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to prevent the widespread scam and spam emails, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If an email message is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank, for example, but the signature does not correspond, you will either not get the email message at all, or you’ll get it with a notification that most likely it’s not authentic. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails the signature test. DKIM will also give you an extra layer of safety when you communicate with your business partners, for instance, since they can see for themselves that all the messages that you exchange are genuine and haven’t been meddled with on their way.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared hosting that we are offering without having to do anything specific, as the mandatory records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send out periodic messages to clients or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized party will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve sent a particular message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All compulsory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to get a semi-dedicated plan, you will not have to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by our company and provided that this prerequisite is met, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be added to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create using the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your associates or clients can take advantage of this functionality, since it will guarantee a higher protection level for your e-correspondence.
