DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for verifying the legitimacy of an email using a digital signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a particular domain, a public cryptographic key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is kept on the email server. If a new email message is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the message is received, the signature is checked by the POP3/IMAP server using the public key. In this way, the recipient can easily distinguish 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 has been modified on its way as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered email messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or removed. This validation system will heighten your email safety, as you can confirm the authenticity of the important emails that you receive and your partners can do the same with the messages that you send them. Based on the given mail service provider’s adopted policies, an email message that fails to pass the test may be deleted or may enter the recipient’s inbox with a warning.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each web hosting that we offer without needing to do anything specific, since the obligatory records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send periodic email messages to customers or business partners, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your address and make it look like you have composed a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose any of the semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain that you add to your new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our advanced cloud platform will create all the needed records automatically, on the condition that the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send out a new message, it will have our platform’s digital signature. The number of spam emails keeps rising every year and quite often bogus email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or partners won’t need to bother about that.
