DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to verify that an e-mail message has been sent by an authenticated server or person. A digital signature is attached to the header of the email message by 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 verify who exactly sent it and whether its content has been edited in some way. The main job of DKIM is to impede the widely spread spam and scam emails, 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 instance, but the signature does not match, you will either not receive the email message at all, or you’ll receive it with a warning that most likely it is not authentic. It depends on email service providers what exactly will happen with an email message that fails to pass the signature check. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also give you an added layer of safety when you communicate with your business allies, for instance, as they can see that all the email messages that you send are genuine and have not been manipulated in the meantime.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared hosting packages that we are offering without the need to do anything specific, as the necessary records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be issued and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. In case you send periodic email messages to customers or business collaborators, they will always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you have composed a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is offered by default with any domain name that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be set up, which is in fact the public key that verifies if a certain email is authentic or not. Such a record is set up once a new domain is added to an account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our mail servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target readers and you will not have to worry about unsolicited people spoofing your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something rather important if you use email messages to reach your business allies.
