DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an authentication system used to verify that an email has been sent by an authenticated person or email server. An electronic signature is attached to the header of the email using a private cryptographic key. When the email is received, a public key that is available in the global Domain Name System is used to check who exactly sent it and if its content has been altered in any way. The primary task of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to impede the widespread scam and spam messages, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If a message is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank or financial institution, for example, but the signature doesn’t match, you will either not get the message at all, or you’ll receive it with a warning notification that most likely it is not an authentic one. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails the signature check. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an additional safety layer when you communicate with your business allies, for example, since they can see that all the e-mail messages that you send are genuine and have not been tampered with in the meantime.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared website hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything specific, since the mandatory records for using this email validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain in question uses our name server records, a private key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send out regular emails to clients or business allies, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you have sent a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All compulsory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to get a semi-dedicated server package, you will not need to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed on our end and as long as this condition is met, a private key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be sent to the DNS database by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create using the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to fake any address. Both you and your associates or customers can benefit from this feature, as it will guarantee a much higher safety level for your online communication.
