DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for confirming the legitimacy of an email message using an electronic signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a given domain name, a public 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 generated using the private key and when the email is delivered, the signature is verified by the POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. In this way, the recipient can easily tell if the message is authentic or if the sender’s email address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will appear 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 emails are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This email validation system will heighten your email security, as you can confirm the genuineness of the important emails that you get and your partners can do the exact same thing with the emails that you send them. Depending on the particular email provider’s policy, a message that fails the test may be deleted or may appear in the receiver’s inbox with a warning notification.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud hosting that we offer without having to do anything in particular, since the compulsory records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our name server records, a private key will be issued and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. In case you send out periodic emails to clients or business associates, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you have composed a certain email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All required DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to purchase a semi-dedicated hosting plan, you will not need to set up anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by us and in case this precondition is satisfied, a private encryption key will be generated on our mail servers and a public key will be published to the DNS database by a special TXT resource record. All email addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to spoof any address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can benefit from this service, since it will ensure a higher level of protection for your online correspondence.
