DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for verifying the legitimacy of an email message using an electronic signature. When DKIM is activated for a specific domain, a public cryptographic key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is stored on the email server. When a new email message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the message is delivered, that signature is ‘scanned’ by the POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily tell if the email message is genuine or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A mismatch will occur if the content of the email has been changed in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received emails are identical and that nothing has been added or removed. This email validation system will heighten your email security, as you can validate the genuineness of the important emails that you get and your partners can do likewise with the email messages that you send them. Depending on the given email service provider’s policy, an email that fails to pass the check may be removed or may end up in the recipient’s inbox with a warning sign.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud website hosting that we offer without the need to do anything in particular, because the required records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain name uses our NS records, a private key will be generated and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send out periodic email messages to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you opt for one of the semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM protection service with any domain name that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our top-notch cloud platform will create all the needed records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, as this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send a new message, it will carry our system’s electronic signature. The number of spam email messages continues to rise every year and quite often phony email addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not have to bother about that.
