DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email validation system used to certify that an email message has been sent by an authenticated mail server or person. A digital signature is attached to the header of the email using a private key. When the email is received, a public key that’s available in the global Domain Name System is used to verify who exactly sent it and if its content has been changed in any way. The essential task of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to avert the widespread 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 instance, but the signature does not correspond, you will either not receive the message at all, or you’ll receive it with a warning that most likely it is not a legitimate one. It depends on email providers what exactly will happen with an email that fails the signature check. DKIM will also offer you an added layer of security when you communicate with your business associates, for example, as they can see that all the email messages that you send 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 and every shared hosting that we offer without doing anything in particular, since the mandatory records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our NS records, a private key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. If you send regular emails to clients or business collaborators, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited individual will be able to forge your address and make it look like you have composed a given email message.
