DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to check that an email has been sent by an authenticated individual or server. An electronic signature is added to the message’s header using a private encryption key. When the email message is received, a public key that’s available in the global DNS database is used to verify who actually sent it and whether the content has been changed in some way. The prime job of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to block the widely spread spam and scam email 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, for instance, but the signature does not match, you will either not get the email message at all, or you’ll get it with a warning alert that most probably it’s not a genuine one. It depends on email service providers what exactly will happen with an email that fails the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also offer you an additional safety layer when you communicate with your business partners, for instance, since they can see for themselves that all the e-mail messages that you send are genuine and have not been meddled with in the meantime.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud hosting service that we are offering without needing to do anything specific, since the required records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain name uses our NS 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 Domain Name System. If you send out regular email messages to clients or business collaborators, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you’ve composed a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated service that we are offering, you’ll be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our leading-edge cloud hosting platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send a new email, it will have our system’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages continues to grow every year and quite frequently forged addresses are used, but if you make use of our hosting services, you and your customers or partners won’t have to bother about that.
