DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for confirming the authenticity of an email message using a digital signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a certain domain name, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is stored on the email 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. Thus, the receiver can easily know if the email is authentic or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email has been altered on its way as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to ensure that the sent and the received messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or erased. This email authentication system will boost your email safety, since you can confirm the authenticity of the important emails that you get and your partners can do the exact same thing with the messages that you send them. Depending on the given mail service provider’s policy, a message that fails to pass the examination may be removed or may appear in the recipient’s inbox with a warning symbol.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting
You will be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every web hosting plans that we are offering without doing anything specific, as the necessary records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain name in question uses our name server 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 global DNS database. In case you send out regular emails to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you have written a particular message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you pick any of the semi-dedicated plans offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our outstanding cloud web hosting platform will create all the obligatory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send a new message, it will include our system’s e-signature. The number of spam messages keeps increasing each year and quite frequently phony addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not need to bother about that.
