DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email authentication system used to certify that an e-mail has been sent by an authenticated individual or mail server. A digital signature is attached to the email’s header using a private key. When the email message is received, a public key that is available in the global DNS database is used to verify who exactly sent it and if the content has been changed in some way. The primary job of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to hinder the widely spread spam and scam 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 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 authentic. It depends on email providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails to pass the signature check. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an extra protection layer when you communicate with your business associates, for instance, since they can see for themselves that all the e-mail messages that you exchange are genuine and have not been modified in the meantime.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each website hosting that we are offering without doing anything in particular, because the needed records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be created and stored 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 messages to customers or business allies, they will always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve composed a particular email message.
