DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for confirming the legitimacy of an email message by using an e-signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a certain domain, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS system 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 checked by the POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily recognize if the email message is legitimate or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email message has been altered on its way as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered emails are identical and that nothing has been attached or erased. This validation system will boost your email security, as you can confirm the legitimacy of the important email messages that you get and your associates can do likewise with the emails that you send them. Based on the given mail service provider’s policies, an email that fails to pass the examination may be removed or may appear in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning sign.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

You will be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux website hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything in particular, as the required records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be created and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send out periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All mandatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to purchase a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you won’t need to set up anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed on our end and provided that this requirement is fulfilled, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the global DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any email address. Both you and your partners or clients can benefit from this service, since it will ensure a higher protection level for your email correspondence.
