DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for checking the genuineness of an email message by using a digital signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a certain domain, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS database 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 email message is delivered, the signature is checked by the incoming POP3/IMAP email server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily know if the email message is genuine or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email message has been altered on its way as well, so DKIM can also be used to ensure that the sent and the received emails are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This validation system will increase your email safety, since you can confirm the genuineness of the important emails that you get and your associates can do likewise with the messages that you send them. Based on the particular mail service provider’s policies, a message that fails the test may be removed or may be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox with a warning flag.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud hosting that we are offering without the need to do anything in particular, since the needed records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain uses our NS records, a private key will be issued and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send periodic email messages to customers or business collaborators, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you have composed a particular message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you pick any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by our company, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain name that you register through your new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The aforementioned is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, 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 every time you send out a new message, it will carry our system’s electronic signature. The number of junk email messages keeps growing each year and very often bogus addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or associates will not need to bother about that.
