DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for verifying the authenticity of an email message using an e-signature. When DKIM is enabled for a given domain, a public cryptographic key is published to the global Domain Name System and a private one is kept on the email server. If a new email message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email message is received, the signature is verified by the POP3/IMAP email server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily know if the email is authentic or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email message has been modified in the meantime as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received email messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or erased. This validation system will boost your email safety, since you can confirm the authenticity of the important email messages that you get and your partners can do likewise with the emails that you send them. Based on the given email provider’s policy, a message that fails the examination may be removed or may appear in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning symbol.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud hosting that we offer without the need to do anything specific, because the mandatory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be issued and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. If you send out periodic emails to clients or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve written a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is offered by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. It should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are managed by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that confirms if a certain email is legitimate or not. This record is set up when a brand-new domain name is added to an account through the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target destination and you will not need to worry about unauthorized persons forging your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something very important when you use email messages to touch base with your business associates.
