DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email authentication system used to confirm that an email message has been sent by an authorized individual or email server. An electronic signature is added to the email message’s header using a private cryptographic key. When the email message is received, a public key that’s available in the global Domain Name System is used to verify who actually sent it and if its content has been modified in any way. The essential job of DKIM is to hamper the widespread scam and spam email 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 instance, but the signature doesn’t match, you will either not get the email message at all, or you will get it with an alert that most probably it is not legitimate. 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 give you an extra safety layer when you communicate with your business allies, for example, as they can see that all the emails that you send are legitimate and haven’t been modified in the meantime.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud web hosting plans that we’re offering without doing anything in particular, as the compulsory records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our name server records, a private cryptographic 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 out periodic messages to clients or business collaborators, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you have written a given message.
