DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email authentication system used to prove that an e-mail message has been sent by an authorized mail server or person. A digital signature is attached to the email message’s header by using a private cryptographic key. When the email message is received, a public key that’s available in the global DNS database is used to validate who exactly sent it and whether the content has been edited in any way. The main function of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to stop the widespread spam and scam emails, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If an email message is sent from an email address claiming to belong to your bank, for instance, but the signature doesn’t correspond, you will either not receive the email at all, or you will get it with a warning that most likely it’s not authentic. It depends on email service providers what exactly will happen with an email that fails to pass the signature check. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an additional security layer when you communicate with your business associates, for instance, since they can see that all the emails that you send are legitimate and have not been meddled with on their way.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every hosting that we are offering without the need to do anything in particular, since the mandatory records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. If you send out periodic messages to customers or business partners, they will always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you have written a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All required DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to purchase a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not have to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed by us and as long as this precondition is satisfied, a private encryption key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create with 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 take advantage of this service, since it will guarantee a much higher security level for your email communication.
