DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for confirming the authenticity of an email by using a digital signature. When DKIM is activated for a given domain name, a public cryptographic 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 generated using the private key and when the message is delivered, that signature is validated by the incoming mail server using the public key. In this way, the recipient can easily distinguish if the email message is authentic or if the sender’s email address has been spoofed. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email message has been changed in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or erased. This authentication system will strengthen your email safety, as you can validate the legitimacy of the important emails that you receive and your partners can do likewise with the messages that you send them. Depending on the given mail service provider’s adopted policies, a message that fails to pass the check may be removed or may show up in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared website hosting plans that we offer without needing to do anything in particular, as the needed records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send regular messages to clients or business associates, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited person 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 Servers
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 if you choose to purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you will not have to set up anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain should use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed by our company and provided that this condition is satisfied, a private key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be published to the DNS database by a special TXT record. All addresses that you set up using the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any address. Both you and your partners or clients can take advantage of this feature, as it will ensure a higher level of protection for your e-correspondence.
