DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email validation system used to confirm that an e-mail message has been sent by an authorized email server or individual. An e-signature is added to the message’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 validate who exactly sent it and if the content has been edited in any way. The principal job of DKIM is to obstruct the widely spread scam and spam messages, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If a message is sent from an email address claiming to belong to your bank or financial institution, for example, but the signature does not correspond, you will either not get the message at all, or you’ll receive it with a warning notice that most probably it’s not a genuine one. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails to pass the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also give you an added layer of protection when you communicate with your business partners, for example, since they can see for themselves that all the emails that you exchange are legitimate and have not been modified in the meantime.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux website hosting that we offer without having to do anything specific, as the required records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send out regular messages to customers or business partners, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have written a particular message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, you’ll be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our leading-edge cloud platform will create all the needed records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send a new email message, it will carry our system’s e-signature. The number of spam emails continues to rise each year and quite frequently spoofed email addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t need to worry about that.
