DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for validating the legitimacy of an email by using a digital signature. When DKIM is activated for a particular domain name, a public cryptographic key is published to the global Domain Name System and a private one is stored on the mail server. If a new message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email message is delivered, that signature is authenticated by the incoming email server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily recognize if the email is legitimate or if the sender’s email address has been forged. 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 ensure that the sent and the delivered messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or removed. This authentication system will increase your email safety, since you can validate the genuineness of the important email messages that you get and your colleagues can do likewise with the email messages that you send them. Depending on the given mail service provider’s policy, an email that fails to pass the examination may be removed or may emerge in the receiver’s inbox with a warning notification.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud hosting that we offer without the need to do anything in particular, as the needed records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be issued 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 regular messages to clients or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you’ve written a given email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All required DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to purchase a semi-dedicated plan, you won’t need to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain name must use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed by us and as long as this prerequisite is satisfied, a private cryptographic key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be published to the DNS system by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any address. Both you and your partners or clients can benefit from this functionality, since it will ensure a much higher protection level for your e-correspondence.
