DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for confirming the authenticity of an email by using an electronic signature. When DKIM is activated for a particular domain, a public cryptographic key is published to the global Domain Name System and a private one is kept on the mail server. If a new email is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the message is received, 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 authentic or if the sender’s address has been forged. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email message has been modified on its way 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 added or deleted. This validation system will strengthen your email safety, since you can confirm 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 policies, an email that fails to pass the check may be deleted or may appear in the recipient’s inbox with a warning symbol.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every shared hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything in particular, as the necessary records for using this email authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send periodic email messages to clients or business collaborators, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you have written a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is included 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 resource records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT record to be created, which is in fact the public key that verifies if a given email message is authentic or not. Such a record is created 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 created on our email servers. If you use our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target destination and you will not have to worry about unauthorized parties spoofing your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is something very important if you use emails to contact your business collaborators.
