DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for confirming the genuineness of an email using an e-signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a particular domain, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is stored on the email server. When a new email is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the message is delivered, that signature is validated by the incoming server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily distinguish if the message is legitimate or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email has been changed 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 removed. This email validation system will increase your email security, as you can validate the legitimacy of the important email messages that you receive and your associates can do likewise with the emails that you send them. Depending on the particular mail service provider’s policies, an email message that fails to pass the test may be erased or may emerge in the recipient’s inbox with a warning notification.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting
You will be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each website hosting
that we are offering without the need to do anything specific, since the mandatory records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the domain in question uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be generated and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. If you send out regular emails to clients or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you have written a certain message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All necessary DKIM records will be set up automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server
account, so if you decide to use this type of hosting, you will not need to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain name must use our name servers in order for its DNS resource records to be managed on our end and if this prerequisite is met, a private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be sent to the DNS database by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your partners or customers can benefit from this functionality, as it will ensure a much higher protection level for your email correspondence.
