DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for validating the authenticity of an email message by using a digital signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a particular domain name, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is stored on the mail server. If a new email is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the message is received, the signature is verified by the receiving server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily tell if the message is authentic or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email message has been edited on its way as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or erased. This email authentication system will enhance your email safety, as you can confirm the legitimacy of the important emails that you receive and your partners can do likewise with the email messages that you send them. Depending on the particular email provider’s adopted policy, a message that fails the test may be erased or may show up in the receiver’s mailbox with a warning flag.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud website hosting that we offer without having to do anything in particular, because the necessary records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our NS records, a private encryption 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 emails to clients or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized party will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you’ve written a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you select one of the semi-dedicated plans offered by us, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain that you register through your new account without any manual intervention, as our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform will create all the necessary records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, as 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 mail servers, so whenever you send out a new email, it will include our system’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages keeps increasing every year and rather frequently bogus email addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your clients or colleagues won’t have to bother about that.
