DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for verifying the authenticity of an email using a digital signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a given domain name, a public key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is stored on the mail server. If a new email message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the message is received, the signature is authenticated by the incoming POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily recognize if the email is legitimate or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email has been changed 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 removed. This email authentication system will boost your email safety, since you can validate the authenticity of the important emails that you get and your associates can do the same with the email messages that you send them. Depending on the particular email provider’s adopted policies, an email message that fails to pass the examination may be erased or may appear in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning alert.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared packages that we are offering without having to do anything specific, since the necessary records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send out periodic messages to customers or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized party will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve sent a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All mandatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to order a semi-dedicated plan, you will not need to set up anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed by our company and as long as this condition is satisfied, a private encryption key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be published to the global DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any address. Both you and your partners or clients can benefit from this option, since it will ensure a higher security level for your electronic communication.
