DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an authentication system used to confirm that an e-mail has been sent by an authorized individual or mail server. A digital signature is attached to the header of the email message using a private key. When the email is received, a public key that’s available in the global DNS database is used to verify who actually sent it and if its content has been modified in some way. The fundamental purpose of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to impede the widely spread scam and spam messages, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If a message is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank, for example, but the signature does not correspond, you will either not get the email at all, or you will receive it with a warning notification that most probably it’s not legitimate. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email that fails to pass the signature examination. DKIM will also supply you with an added layer of security when you communicate with your business associates, for instance, since they can see that all the e-mail messages that you send are genuine and haven’t been manipulated on their way.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud hosting that we are offering without the need to do anything specific, as the obligatory records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be issued and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send out periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you have written a given email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us, you’ll be able to use the DKIM option with any domain name that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our outstanding cloud platform will create all the required records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT record to be created for the domain name, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so anytime you send a new message, it will include our system’s e-signature. The number of spam email messages continues to grow each year and quite frequently false email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or associates won’t have to bother about that.
