DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for checking the authenticity of an email using a digital signature. When DKIM is enabled for a specific domain, a public cryptographic key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the email server. If a new email message is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the email message is delivered, that signature is authenticated by the incoming mail server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily tell if the email message is legitimate or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email message has been changed on its way as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to ensure that the sent and the received messages are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This validation system will enhance your email security, as you can validate the genuineness of the important emails that you receive and your colleagues can do the same with the messages that you send them. Based on the particular email service provider’s policies, a message that fails to pass the examination may be erased or may reach the receiver’s mailbox with a warning notification.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every hosting that we are offering without needing to do anything specific, because the required records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain in question uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send out periodic messages to customers or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you’ve written a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you select any of the semi-dedicated service that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain name that you add to your brand-new account without any manual intervention, as our outstanding cloud web hosting platform will create all the compulsory records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send out a new email, it will carry our platform’s electronic signature. The number of spam emails continues to increase every year and quite often counterfeit addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not have to worry about that.
