DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to verify that an email has been sent by an authenticated server or individual. An e-signature is added to the message’s header using a private key. When the message is received, a public key that’s available in the global DNS database is used to check who actually sent it and if its content has been changed in any way. The prime task of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to block the widely spread spam and scam emails, 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 example, but the signature does not correspond, you will either not receive the email at all, or you will receive it with a warning alert that most probably it is not genuine. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email which fails to pass the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also supply you with an extra security layer when you communicate with your business associates, for instance, since they can see for themselves that all the messages that you exchange are authentic and haven’t been manipulated in the meantime.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You will be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux shared hosting packages that we offer without needing to do anything in particular, as the necessary records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain in question uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send out regular emails to customers or business allies, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve sent a particular message.

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 database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send out a new email message, it will carry our system’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages continues to rise each year and very often phony addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your customers or partners will not have to bother about that.
