DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to verify that an email has been sent by an authorized email server or person. A digital signature is attached to the message’s header using a private key. When the email is received, a public key that’s available in the global DNS database is used to confirm who actually sent it and whether the content has been modified in any way. The essential function of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to obstruct the widespread spam and scam emails, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If an email message is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank or financial institution, for example, but the signature does not correspond, you will either not get the message at all, or you’ll get it with a warning note that most probably it is not genuine. It depends on email service providers what exactly will happen with an email that fails to pass the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also give you an added safety layer when you communicate with your business partners, for example, since they can see that all the e-mails that you send are authentic and have not been manipulated in the meantime.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud hosting that we offer without the need to do anything in particular, as the compulsory records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an active web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain uses our NS records, a private key will be created and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. In case you send regular email messages to customers or business collaborators, they will always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you’ve composed a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated plans that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain that you add to your brand new account without any manual setup, as our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, as this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so anytime you send out a new email message, it will have our platform’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages keeps rising every year and quite often forged email addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your customers or partners will not have to worry about that.
