DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for checking the authenticity of an email by using a digital signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a certain domain, a public encryption 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 generated using the private key and when the email message is received, the signature is verified by the incoming POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily discern if the email message is genuine or if the sender’s email address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email has been edited in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or removed. This authentication system will boost your email safety, as you can verify the genuineness of the important emails that you get and your colleagues can do likewise with the messages that you send them. Depending on the given email service provider’s adopted policy, an email that fails to pass the examination may be deleted or may end up in the receiver’s inbox with a warning sign.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting

If you purchase any of the cloud web hosting that we offer, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled as standard for any domain that you add to your hosting account, so you won’t have to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud web hosting platform), a private encryption key will be created straight away on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. All email addresses set up with this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the recipients will know that they are authentic, because the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unsolicited parties to forge your email addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you opt for one of the semi-dedicated service that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM option with any domain that you add to your brand-new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our outstanding cloud platform will set up all the compulsory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is required for a TXT record to be created for the domain, as this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send a new email, it will include our platform’s e-signature. The number of spam email messages continues to increase every year and rather frequently spoofed email addresses are used, but when you use our web hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not need to bother about that.
