DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to verify that an e-mail has been sent by an authenticated email server or person. An e-signature is attached to the email message’s header using a private key. When the message is received, a public key that is available in the global Domain Name System is used to check who exactly sent it and whether the content has been altered in some way. The prime task of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to hamper the widely spread scam and spam emails, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If an email is sent from an email address claiming to belong to your bank, for instance, but the signature does not correspond, you will either not get the message at all, or you will get it with a warning note that most likely it’s not genuine. It depends on email service providers what exactly will happen with an email which fails to pass the signature examination. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also provide you with an added protection layer when you communicate with your business associates, for example, as they can see that all the messages that you exchange are legitimate and haven’t been manipulated on their way.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud website hosting plans that we’re offering without having to do anything specific, because the necessary records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send out regular emails to clients or business allies, they will always be received and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have composed a given email message.
