DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to prove that an email message has been sent by an authorized individual or mail server. An electronic signature is attached to the email’s header by using a private encryption key. When the email message is received, a public key that is available in the global Domain Name System is used to validate who actually sent it and if its content has been modified in any way. The fundamental task of DKIM is to hamper the widespread scam and spam messages, 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 or financial institution, for example, but the signature does not match, you will either not receive the email at all, or you will receive it with a warning notification that most likely it is not a genuine one. It depends on mail service providers what exactly will happen with an email that fails to pass the signature check. DomainKeys Identified Mail will also give you an added layer of protection when you communicate with your business associates, for instance, as they can see for themselves that all the email messages that you exchange are genuine and have not been tampered with on their way.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared hosting that we are offering without needing to do anything in particular, as the needed records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our NS records, a private key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send regular email messages to customers or business allies, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have sent a given email message.
