DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for checking the genuineness of an email by using a digital signature. When DKIM is enabled for a particular domain, a public cryptographic key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is stored 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 validated by the incoming server using the public key. In this way, the recipient can easily tell if the email is authentic or if the sender’s address has been forged. A mismatch will occur if the content of the email message has been modified in the meantime as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or removed. This authentication system will heighten your email safety, as you can confirm the legitimacy of the important emails that you receive and your colleagues can do the exact same thing with the email messages that you send them. Depending on the particular email provider’s policy, an email that fails to pass the examination may be erased or may appear in the receiver’s inbox with a warning.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything specific, because the needed records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain uses our name server records, a private key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send out periodic messages to customers or business collaborators, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve composed a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you opt for one of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer, you’ll be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform will create all the compulsory records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, since this is how the public 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 a new email, it will include our system’s digital signature. The number of spam messages continues to grow each year and quite frequently forged addresses are used, but if you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or partners will not have to worry about that.
