DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for checking the authenticity of an email message by using a digital signature. When DKIM is activated for a given domain, a public key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is kept on the email server. When a new email is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email is delivered, that signature is verified by the POP3/IMAP email server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily distinguish if the message is authentic or if the sender’s email address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will appear 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 delivered emails are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This authentication system will increase your email safety, since you can validate the legitimacy of the important email messages that you receive and your partners can do the exact same thing with the messages that you send them. Based on the given email service provider’s adopted policies, a message that fails the examination may be removed or may end up in the receiver’s inbox with a warning notification.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux website hosting that we’re offering without needing to do anything specific, because the necessary records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send out regular messages to clients or business allies, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve written a given message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you opt for any of the semi-dedicated service that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain name that you register through your brand new account without any manual setup, as our avant-garde cloud platform will create all the necessary records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, as 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 every time you send a new message, it will include our platform’s digital signature. The number of junk email messages keeps growing each year and rather frequently fake email addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not need to worry about that.
