DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an authentication system used to prove that an email has been sent by an authenticated person or server. An e-signature is added to the email message’s header by using a private key. When the email message is received, a public key that is available in the global DNS database is used to verify who exactly sent it and if its content has been edited in any way. The principal job of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to hamper the widespread scam and spam messages, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If an email is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank or financial institution, for instance, but the signature doesn’t match, you will either not receive the email at all, or you will get it with a warning notification that most probably it is not an authentic one. It depends on email providers what exactly will happen with an email which fails to pass the signature examination. DKIM will also provide you with an added layer of safety when you communicate with your business associates, for instance, as they can see for themselves that all the emails that you exchange are genuine and haven’t been manipulated on their way.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud hosting that we offer without having to do anything specific, because the required records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send out periodic email messages to clients or business associates, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have sent a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All needed DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to order a semi-dedicated hosting package, you will not have to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed by our company and provided that this precondition is satisfied, a private encryption key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be sent to the global DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your associates or clients can take advantage of this option, since it will ensure a higher level of safety for your electronic correspondence.
