DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for verifying the legitimacy of an email message using an electronic signature. When DKIM is activated for a particular domain, a public key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the mail server. When a new email is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the email message is received, that signature is validated by the POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily distinguish if the message is genuine or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email message has been altered on its way as well, so DKIM can also be used to ensure that the sent and the received email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This email authentication system will strengthen your email security, since you can confirm the authenticity of the important emails that you get and your associates can do the exact same thing with the messages that you send them. Depending on the particular email provider’s adopted policy, an email message that fails the check may be erased or may show up in the recipient’s inbox with a warning sign.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud web hosting services that we offer without having to do anything in particular, as the compulsory records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be generated and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send regular email messages to clients or business collaborators, they will always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have written a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you opt for one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us, you will be able to use the DKIM protection service with any domain that you register through your brand-new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual setup, as our outstanding cloud platform will set up all the compulsory records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public encryption 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 email, it will include our platform’s e-signature. The number of junk messages continues to rise each year and very often fake email addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or partners won’t have to bother about that.
