DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for verifying the authenticity of an email message using a digital signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a certain domain name, 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, that signature is verified by the POP3/IMAP email server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily know if the email message is genuine or if the sender’s email address has been spoofed. A mismatch will occur if the content of the email message has been altered on its way 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 attached or deleted. This validation system will boost your email security, since you can confirm the legitimacy of the important emails that you get and your partners can do the same with the emails that you send them. Depending on the particular email service provider’s policy, a message that fails the check may be erased or may end up in the receiver’s inbox with a warning.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux shared website hosting packages that we’re offering without doing anything specific, as the required records for using this validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send out regular messages to clients or business partners, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it look like you’ve written a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you opt for any of the semi-dedicated packages that we offer, you’ll be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you register through your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our advanced cloud platform will set up all the obligatory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is required for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain name, since this is how the public key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send a new email, it will have our system’s electronic signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages continues to grow every year and very often forged addresses are used, but if you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or partners won’t need to worry about that.
