DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to check that an email message has been sent by an authenticated person or server. A digital signature is added to the header of the email message by using a private encryption key. When the email message is received, a public key that is available in the global Domain Name System is used to check who actually sent it and whether the content has been changed in any way. The prime purpose of DKIM is to impede the widely spread spam and scam messages, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If an email is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank, for instance, but the signature doesn’t correspond, you will either not get the message at all, or you’ll get it with a warning alert that most probably it is not a legitimate one. It depends on email providers what exactly will happen with an email message that fails the signature examination. DKIM will also supply you with an added protection layer when you communicate with your business associates, for example, since they can see for themselves that all the e-mails that you exchange are legitimate and have not been tampered with on their way.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every hosting plans that we’re offering without the need to do anything in particular, as the mandatory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send periodic emails to clients or business allies, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you have composed a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you choose one of the semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by us, you will be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our avant-garde cloud hosting platform will create all the needed records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so every time you send a new email, it will include our system’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk emails continues to grow every year and rather frequently phony addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or associates won’t need to bother about that.
