DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for confirming the authenticity of an email message by using an electronic signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a given domain, a public key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the email server. When a new email message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email message is delivered, that signature is validated by the POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. In this way, the recipient can easily tell if the email message is legitimate or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email message has been altered in the meantime as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This email validation system will heighten your email safety, as you can confirm the genuineness of the important emails that you receive and your associates can do the same with the messages that you send them. Depending on the particular mail service provider’s adopted policy, an email message that fails the examination may be erased or may end up in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning sign.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

You will be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every website hosting that we are offering without needing to do anything in particular, since the obligatory records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send out regular messages to clients or business partners, they will always be received and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have written a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option comes by default with any domain that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with us. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be set up, which is actually the public cryptographic key that confirms if a certain email message is authentic or not. Such a record is set up the moment a brand-new domain is added to a semi-dedicated hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is created on our email servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target audience and you won’t need to worry about unauthorized people spoofing your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something quite important when you use emails to touch base with your business partners.
