DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for confirming the legitimacy of an email by using an e-signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a particular domain name, a public key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is stored on the email server. If a new message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the message is received, the signature is authenticated by the incoming POP3/IMAP server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily know if the email message is genuine or if the sender’s address has been forged. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email message has been altered on its way as well, so DKIM can also be used to ensure that the sent and the delivered emails are identical and that nothing has been attached or erased. This email authentication system will strengthen your email security, as you can validate the genuineness of the important emails that you get and your partners can do likewise with the messages that you send them. Depending on the particular mail service provider’s policies, an email that fails the check may be removed or may enter the receiver’s inbox with a warning sign.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared hosting that we’re offering without the need to do anything in particular, since the obligatory records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain in question uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send out regular email messages to customers or business associates, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you’ve sent a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you select one of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we are offering, you’ll be able to use DKIM protection with any domain that you add to your brand new account without any manual setup, as our innovative cloud web hosting platform will set up all the necessary records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so whenever you send out a new email message, it will include our platform’s digital signature. The number of spam emails keeps increasing each year and rather often bogus addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not have to bother about that.
