DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for checking the legitimacy of an email by using a digital signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a particular domain name, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is stored on the mail server. If a new email is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email message is delivered, that signature is ‘scanned’ by the incoming server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily distinguish if the email message is genuine or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A mismatch will occur if the content of the email has been changed in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or removed. This email authentication system will enhance your email safety, as you can confirm the genuineness of the important emails that you receive and your colleagues can do likewise with the messages that you send them. Depending on the particular email provider’s policies, an email message that fails the check may be deleted or may show up in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning flag.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud web hosting packages that we’re offering without having to do anything in particular, as the needed records for using this email validation system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send out regular email messages to clients or business associates, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have sent a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages offered by us, you will be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain name that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our high-tech cloud hosting platform will set up all the mandatory records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, since this is how the public encryption 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 message, it will carry our platform’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk emails continues to increase every year and very frequently forged addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not need to worry about that.
