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 name, a public key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is kept on the email server. If a new email is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the email message is delivered, the signature is verified by the incoming POP3/IMAP server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily distinguish if the message is genuine or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email message has been changed in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered messages are identical and that nothing has been added or removed. This authentication system will increase your email security, since you can verify the genuineness of the important email messages that you get and your associates can do the same with the messages that you send them. Based on the particular email provider’s policy, an email message that fails the examination may be erased or may appear in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning symbol.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything in particular, because the required records for using this validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send regular email messages to clients or business allies, they will always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve composed a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you opt for any of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain name that you register through your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our high-tech cloud platform will create all the obligatory records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send out a new email message, it will have our platform’s e-signature. The number of junk messages keeps growing each year and very frequently bogus email addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues won’t have to bother about that.
