DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to check that an e-mail message has been sent by an authenticated mail server or individual. An electronic signature is attached to the message’s header using a private key. When the message is received, a public key that is available in the global DNS database is used to validate who actually sent it and if the content has been edited in some way. The principal task of DKIM is to stop the widely spread spam and scam emails, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If an email 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’ll get 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 which fails to pass the signature test. DKIM will also give you an extra protection layer when you communicate with your business allies, for example, as they can see for themselves that all the e-mails that you exchange are genuine and haven’t been meddled with in the meantime.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud hosting plans that we are offering without the need to do anything in particular, since the mandatory records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an active web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be issued and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. In case you send regular messages to clients or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have written a given message.
