DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for checking the genuineness of an email message by using an electronic signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a particular domain name, a public cryptographic key is published to the global DNS system 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 message is received, that signature is checked by the receiving server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily recognize if the email message is genuine or if the sender’s address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email message has been altered on its way as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to ensure that the sent and the received email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or removed. This email authentication system will increase your email safety, since you can confirm the authenticity of the important emails that you receive and your colleagues can do the same with the emails that you send them. Depending on the given email service provider’s adopted policies, a message that fails to pass the check may be erased or may be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox with a warning symbol.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud website hosting that we’re offering without doing anything specific, since the required records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain name uses our NS 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 DNS system. In case you send out periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized party will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you have written a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service is offered by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is in fact the public key that verifies if a particular message is genuine or not. This record is created as soon as a domain is added to an account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target readers and you won’t need to worry about unauthorized persons using your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something rather important when you use emails to contact your business allies.
