DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for confirming the authenticity of an email message by using an e-signature. When DKIM is activated for a given domain, a public key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the mail server. When a new email is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email message is received, the signature is verified by the incoming POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily distinguish if the message is authentic or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A mismatch will occur if the content of the email has been modified in the meantime as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This email authentication system will strengthen your email safety, as you can confirm the genuineness of the important email messages that you get and your partners can do likewise with the messages that you send them. Based on the given email service provider’s policies, a message that fails the examination may be removed or may enter the receiver’s mailbox with a warning symbol.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux hosting that we’re offering without needing to do anything specific, since the required records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain in question uses our name server records, a private key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send periodic emails to customers or business associates, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve composed a given email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All compulsory DomainKeys Identified Mail 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 order a semi-dedicated server plan, you will not have to configure anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed on our end and in case this requirement is matched, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be added to the DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to forge any email address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can benefit from this service, as it will ensure a much higher level of protection for your e-correspondence.
