DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for validating the legitimacy of an email message using a digital signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a given domain, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the mail server. If a new email is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the message is delivered, the signature is ‘scanned’ by the receiving server using the public key. In this way, the recipient can easily know if the message is authentic or if the sender’s address has been forged. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email message has been changed in the meantime as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered emails are identical and that nothing has been attached or deleted. This validation system will strengthen your email safety, as you can confirm the legitimacy 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 particular email provider’s adopted policy, a message that fails to pass the examination may be deleted or may end up in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux shared website hosting that we are offering without having to do anything specific, since the compulsory records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be created and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. In case you send periodic email messages to customers or business allies, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you have sent a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you choose any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering, you will be able to use the DKIM feature with any domain name that you register through your new account without any manual setup, as our advanced cloud hosting platform will set up all the required records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT 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 mail servers, so whenever you send out a new email message, it will carry our system’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps rising every year and very frequently counterfeit addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your customers or associates won’t have to worry about that.
