DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an authentication system used to check that an e-mail has been sent by an authorized mail server or person. An e-signature is added to the header of the email 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 actually sent it and whether the content has been changed in some way. The prime job of DKIM is to impede the widespread spam and scam email messages, as it makes it impossible to forge an email address. If an email message is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank or financial institution, 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 alert that most likely it’s not a legitimate one. It depends on email providers what exactly will happen with an email message which fails the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also give you an added safety layer when you communicate with your business associates, for instance, 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 Cloud Hosting
You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud hosting packages that we’re offering without having to do 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 through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain name uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send regular emails to customers or business collaborators, they will always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have written a certain email message.
