DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for confirming the authenticity of an email message using an electronic signature. When DKIM is enabled for a specific domain, a public encryption key is published to the global Domain Name System and a private one is kept on the mail server. When a new message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email message is delivered, the signature is ‘scanned’ by the incoming mail server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily discern if the email message is authentic or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email has been changed in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to ensure that the sent and the delivered email messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or erased. This email validation system will heighten your email safety, since you can verify the authenticity of the important email messages that you receive and your colleagues can do likewise with the emails that you send them. Based on the particular email service provider’s adopted policies, a message that fails to pass the test may be erased or may end up in the receiver’s inbox with a warning notification.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud hosting that we’re offering without doing anything in particular, because the obligatory records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain in question uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. In case you send out regular messages to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a particular email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, you’ll be able to use DomainKeys Identified Mail protection with any domain that you add to your new semi-dedicated server account without any manual intervention, as our advanced cloud web 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 created for the domain, since 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 email servers, so whenever you send out a new email, it will include our platform’s electronic signature. The number of junk email messages continues to grow every year and very frequently fake email addresses are used, but if you make use of our web hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not have to worry about that.
