DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for checking the genuineness of an email using an electronic signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a certain domain name, a public key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the mail server. If a new email is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the message is delivered, the signature is checked by the receiving server using the public key. In this way, the recipient can easily know if the email is genuine or if the sender’s address has been forged. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email message has been altered on its way 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 erased. This email authentication system will boost your email safety, as you can validate the legitimacy of the important email messages that you receive and your colleagues can do the same with the email messages that you send them. Based on the particular email provider’s adopted policy, an email that fails the check may be removed or may emerge in the recipient’s inbox with a warning sign.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud hosting plans that we are offering without needing to do anything specific, since the mandatory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be generated and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. In case you send out periodic messages to clients or business associates, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you have composed a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you opt for one of the semi-dedicated plans that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our top-notch cloud platform will set up all the compulsory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT record to be created for the domain name, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so anytime you send out a new message, it will include our platform’s electronic signature. The number of junk email messages keeps rising each year and rather often counterfeit addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues won’t need to worry about that.
