DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to check that an e-mail has been sent by an authorized server or person. An e-signature is added to the header of the email message using a private encryption key. When the message is received, a public key that’s available in the global Domain Name System is used to check who exactly sent it and whether its content has been altered in some way. The prime function of DKIM is to obstruct the widely spread spam and scam emails, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If a message is sent from an email address claiming to belong to your bank, for instance, but the signature does not correspond, you will either not get the email message at all, or you will receive it with a warning alert that most likely it is not a genuine one. It depends on email service providers what exactly will happen with an email which fails the signature test. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also supply you with an additional protection layer when you communicate with your business allies, for example, since they can see for themselves that all the emails that you exchange are authentic and have not been tampered with on their way.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared hosting plans that we’re offering without doing anything in particular, as the needed records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain name uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be issued and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send regular emails to customers or business partners, they will always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you’ve composed a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you select one of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering, you’ll be able to use DKIM protection with any domain name that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our avant-garde cloud hosting platform will create all the compulsory records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain name, as 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 whenever you send out a new email, it will include our platform’s digital signature. The number of spam messages keeps increasing each year and rather frequently false email addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not need to worry about that.
