DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for checking the genuineness of an email by using a digital signature. When DKIM is enabled for a certain domain, a public key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the email server. If a new email message is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the message is delivered, the signature is authenticated by the incoming mail server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily discern if the email message is legitimate or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email message has been altered on its way as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered email messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or removed. This email validation system will boost your email safety, as you can confirm the legitimacy of the important email messages that you receive and your associates can do likewise with the email messages that you send them. Depending on the particular email provider’s policies, an email message that fails the check may be erased or may enter the recipient’s mailbox with a warning.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Website Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared website hosting service that we’re offering without the need to do anything specific, since the compulsory records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain name uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be generated and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. If you send regular email messages to clients or business associates, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited party will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve written a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is offered by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. It must also use our name servers, so that its DNS records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is in fact the public cryptographic key that verifies if a particular email is genuine or not. This record is set up the moment a brand-new domain is registered in a semi-dedicated server account via the Hepsia Control Panel and in the meantime, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you use our email and web hosting services, your messages will always reach their target audience and you won’t need to worry about unauthorized people spoofing your email addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is something pretty important if you use emails to communicate with your business partners.
