DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email authentication system used to certify that an email message has been sent by an authorized individual or server. An e-signature is added to the email message’s header by using a private key. When the email is received, a public key that is available in the global DNS database is used to verify who actually sent it and whether its content has been edited in any way. The fundamental purpose of DKIM is to hinder the widespread scam and spam email messages, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If an email message is sent from an email address claiming to belong to your bank, for instance, but the signature does not match, you will either not get the message at all, or you will get it with a warning notice that most likely it’s not a legitimate one. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails to pass the signature test. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an added layer of safety when you communicate with your business associates, for example, as they can see for themselves that all the emails that you exchange are legitimate and have not been manipulated on their way.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared website hosting that we are offering without needing to do anything specific, because the needed records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain name uses our NS records, a private key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. In case you send regular email messages to clients or business allies, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited individual will be able to forge your address and make it look like you’ve written a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you pick one of the semi-dedicated servers offered by us, you will be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain name that you register through your new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our innovative cloud web hosting platform will create all the required records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send a new email message, it will have our system’s e-signature. The number of junk email messages keeps increasing every year and quite often spoofed addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates will not need to worry about that.
