DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to check that an e-mail has been sent by an authorized person or email server. An e-signature is attached to the header of the message by using a private encryption key. When the message is received, a public key that is available in the global Domain Name System is used to validate who actually sent it and if the content has been changed in some way. The primary job of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to avert the widely spread spam and scam messages, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If an email message is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank or financial institution, for instance, but the signature doesn’t correspond, you will either not get the message at all, or you’ll receive it with an alert that most probably it’s not genuine. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails to pass the signature check. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an extra safety layer when you communicate with your business partners, for instance, as they can see for themselves that all the e-mail messages that you exchange are authentic and have not been modified on their way.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud hosting service that we’re offering without having to do anything specific, because the needed records for using this validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send periodic messages to customers or business partners, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you have sent a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you pick any of the semi-dedicated hosting service that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature with any domain name that you register through your new semi-dedicated account without any manual intervention, as our outstanding cloud hosting platform will create all the needed records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send out a new message, it will have our platform’s digital signature. The number of junk emails keeps increasing every year and quite frequently forged addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your customers or partners will not need to worry about that.
