DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for validating the legitimacy of an email message using an e-signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a specific domain name, a public cryptographic key is published to the global Domain Name System and a private one is kept on the mail server. If a new email is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email is delivered, the signature is authenticated by the incoming POP3/IMAP server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily tell if the message is genuine or if the sender’s address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email has been modified in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received emails are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This authentication system will enhance your email security, since you can verify the genuineness of the important email messages that you get and your associates can do likewise with the messages that you send them. Depending on the given email provider’s adopted policies, an email that fails to pass the examination may be deleted or may be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox with a warning notification.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud web hosting packages that we’re offering without the need to do anything in particular, since the required records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain in question uses our name server records, a private key will be generated and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. If you send periodic email messages to customers or business associates, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your address and make it look like you’ve composed a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All necessary DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you will not need to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed by us and in case this precondition is fulfilled, a private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be published to the global Domain Name System by a special TXT record. All addresses that you create using the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to spoof any address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can take advantage of this functionality, as it will ensure a higher level of protection for your electronic communication.
