DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for validating the legitimacy of an email message using an electronic signature. When DKIM is activated for a specific domain, a public key is published to the global Domain Name System and a private one is kept on the mail server. If a new email message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email is received, that signature is ‘scanned’ by the incoming POP3/IMAP server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily discern if the email is legitimate or if the sender’s email address has been spoofed. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email message has been modified on its way as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This authentication system will increase your email safety, as you can confirm the authenticity of the important emails that you receive and your partners can do the same with the email messages that you send them. Depending on the particular email service provider’s policy, an email message that fails the examination may be removed or may reach the receiver’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 are offering without the need to do anything in particular, since the required records for using this validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain name uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be issued and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. In case you send regular emails to customers or business allies, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve composed a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All needed DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to buy a semi-dedicated package, you will not have to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain must use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed on our end and as long as this precondition is matched, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create with the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to spoof any address. Both you and your associates or clients can take advantage of this service, since it will guarantee a much higher level of security for your email correspondence.
