DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for validating the authenticity of an email message using a digital signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a particular domain name, 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 is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the message is delivered, the signature is authenticated by the incoming POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. In this way, the recipient can easily discern if the email 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 altered on its way as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered emails are identical and that nothing has been attached or removed. This authentication system will boost your email safety, as you can verify the genuineness of the important email messages that you get and your colleagues can do the same with the email messages that you send them. Depending on the given email service provider’s policies, an email that fails the check may be deleted or may emerge in the receiver’s mailbox with a warning alert.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux shared web hosting packages that we’re offering without needing to do anything specific, as the mandatory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain 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 DNS system. If you send regular emails to customers or business partners, they will always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you have written a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All needed DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you decide to order a semi-dedicated server plan, you won’t 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 by our company and provided that this condition is answered, a private encryption key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you set up using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any email address. Both you and your associates or clients can take advantage of this feature, as it will guarantee a higher level of security for your electronic communication.
