DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email validation system used to certify that an email message has been sent by an authenticated individual or mail server. An electronic signature is attached to the message’s header using a private encryption key. When the email is received, a public key that is available in the global Domain Name System is used to validate who actually sent it and if the content has been changed in some way. The essential job of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to block the widespread scam and spam 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, for instance, but the signature doesn’t correspond, you will either not receive the email at all, or you will get it with a warning that most likely it’s not genuine. It depends on email service providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails to pass the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also supply you with an extra safety layer when you communicate with your business associates, for instance, since they can see for themselves that all the messages that you send are authentic and have not been manipulated in the meantime.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud hosting packages that we are offering without the need to do anything specific, as the required records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be created and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send out periodic emails to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your address and make it look like you’ve sent a given email message.
