DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email validation system used to check that an email has been sent by an authorized server or person. An e-signature is attached to the message’s header using a private key. When the message is received, a public key that’s available in the global Domain Name System is used to check who exactly sent it and whether the content has been edited in some way. The prime function of DKIM is to hinder the widespread spam and scam emails, 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 example, but the signature doesn’t correspond, you will either not get the email at all, or you’ll get it with a warning note that most probably it’s not genuine. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email message that fails to pass the signature check. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also give you an added layer of security when you communicate with your business partners, for instance, since they can see that all the email messages that you send are authentic and haven’t been tampered with on their way.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared hosting that we are offering without having to do anything in particular, because the compulsory records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain name 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 regular messages to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve written a particular message.
