DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for confirming the authenticity of an email by using a digital signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a given domain name, a public key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is stored on the mail server. When a new email message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the message is received, that signature is ‘scanned’ by the POP3/IMAP server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily tell if the message is authentic or if the sender’s address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear 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 received emails are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This validation system will heighten your email security, as you can validate the genuineness of the important emails that you receive and your associates can do the same with the email messages that you send them. Based on the given mail service provider’s policy, an email message that fails to pass the check may be removed or may enter the receiver’s inbox with a warning symbol.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared hosting plans that we offer without needing to do anything in particular, because the necessary records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an active hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain name in question uses our name server 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 database. If you send out regular emails to clients or business partners, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized party will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a certain email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you opt for any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you register through your new account without any manual intervention, as our leading-edge cloud platform will create all the needed records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required 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 DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send a new email, it will have our platform’s digital signature. The number of junk emails continues to grow every year and very often fake addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t have to bother about that.
