DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to check that an e-mail message has been sent by an authenticated person or server. An electronic signature is attached to the header of the message using a private key. When the email message is received, a public key that is available in the global DNS database is used to check who actually sent it and if its content has been altered in some way. The chief job of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to prevent the widespread scam and spam emails, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If an email 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 warning that most probably it is not a legitimate one. It depends on email service providers what exactly will happen with an email message that fails the signature test. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also offer you an extra layer of security when you communicate with your business partners, for example, since they can see that all the e-mail messages that you exchange are genuine and haven’t been meddled with on their way.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting
You will be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux web hosting that we are offering without needing to do anything specific, because the mandatory records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain name uses our NS records, a private key will be issued and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send regular emails to customers or business allies, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you’ve written a given email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you select one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by our company, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain name that you add to your brand-new account without any manual setup, as our innovative cloud hosting platform will set up all the necessary records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so anytime you send a new email, it will include our platform’s e-signature. The number of spam emails keeps growing every year and very often bogus addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not need to bother about that.
