DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an authentication system used to certify that an e-mail message has been sent by an authenticated email server or person. A digital signature is added to the email’s header by using a private cryptographic key. When the email is received, a public key that’s available in the global DNS database is used to verify who exactly sent it and if its content has been changed in any way. The primary job of DKIM is to hinder the widespread scam and spam emails, as it makes it impossible to fake 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 message at all, or you will receive it with a warning note that most likely it is not legitimate. It depends on email providers what exactly will happen with an email which fails to pass the signature check. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an added safety layer when you communicate with your business associates, for example, since they can see for themselves that all the messages that you send are legitimate and have not been meddled with on their way.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud hosting that we are offering without having to do anything specific, because the required records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain uses our NS records, a private key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. In case you send periodic email messages to clients or business collaborators, they will always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have composed a given message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is included by default with any domain name that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are managed by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is in fact the public key that confirms if a particular email message is authentic or not. This record is set up when a brand-new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated server account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your emails will always reach their target viewers and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized persons using your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something quite important in case you use email messages to communicate with your business partners.
