DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for checking the legitimacy of an email message by using an e-signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a given domain, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the mail server. If a new message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email message is delivered, that signature is checked by the incoming POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily tell if the message is authentic or if the sender’s email address has been forged. 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 ensure that the sent and the delivered emails are identical and that nothing has been attached or erased. This validation system will heighten your email safety, since you can verify the legitimacy of the important emails that you get and your associates can do likewise with the emails that you send them. Depending on the particular email service provider’s adopted policy, a message that fails to pass the examination may be erased or may appear in the recipient’s inbox with a warning flag.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud hosting that we’re offering without needing to do anything in particular, since the needed records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain name uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be issued and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send periodic email messages to clients or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited individual will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have written a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

All necessary DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you will not need to set up anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name should use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed by our company and as long as this precondition is satisfied, a private encryption key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be sent to the global DNS database by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you create with the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any email address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can benefit from this option, as it will ensure a much higher level of safety for your email correspondence.
