DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for verifying the legitimacy of an email by using a digital signature. When DKIM is activated for a specific domain name, a public cryptographic key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is stored on the email server. If a new message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email message is delivered, the signature is validated by the receiving server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily discern if the email message is authentic or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email message has been edited on its way as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to ensure that the sent and the delivered email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This validation system will strengthen your email safety, as you can verify the authenticity of the important email messages that you receive and your associates can do the same with the emails that you send them. Depending on the given mail service provider’s adopted policies, an email message that fails to pass the test may be removed or may be delivered to the receiver’s inbox with a warning.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared hosting plans that we’re offering without having to do anything in particular, because the necessary records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an active account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored 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 periodic email messages to clients 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’ve written a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you choose any of the semi-dedicated plans offered by us, you will be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated account without any manual setup, as our leading-edge cloud hosting platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, provided that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain name, as 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 email servers, so every time you send out a new message, it will include our platform’s electronic signature. The number of spam email messages keeps rising each year and quite frequently bogus email addresses are used, but if you use our web hosting services, you and your customers or partners will not need to bother about that.
