DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for checking the authenticity of an email by using an e-signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a particular domain, a public cryptographic key is published to the global Domain Name System and a private one is kept on the mail server. If a new email message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email message is delivered, the signature is authenticated by the incoming email server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily recognize if the email is genuine or if the sender’s address has been forged. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email message has been changed in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to ensure that the sent and the delivered messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or deleted. This email validation system will increase your email safety, as you can verify the legitimacy of the important email messages that you receive and your associates can do the exact same thing with the emails that you send them. Based on the particular email service provider’s adopted policy, an email that fails the test may be deleted or may emerge in the recipient’s inbox with a warning flag.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared hosting that we are offering without doing anything specific, because the needed records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be created and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. In case you send out regular email messages to customers or business collaborators, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized party will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you have sent a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is included by default with any domain that’s added to 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 system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is in fact the public key that confirms if a certain message is legitimate or not. This record is set up once a brand new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target audience and you won’t need to worry about unauthorized people using your addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something very important in case you use email messages to communicate with your business partners.
