DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for validating the genuineness of an email by using a digital 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 kept on the email server. If a new email is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the email message is received, the signature is verified by the incoming POP3/IMAP server using the public key. In this way, the recipient can easily tell if the email is authentic or if the sender’s address has been forged. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email has been modified in the meantime as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or deleted. This validation system will enhance your email security, since you can confirm the genuineness of the important emails that you receive and your colleagues can do the same with the messages that you send them. Based on the particular email service provider’s policies, a message that fails the test may be deleted or may end up in the receiver’s inbox with a warning symbol.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting
You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud web hosting packages that we’re offering without having to do anything in particular, as the compulsory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. In case you send out periodic email messages to customers or business collaborators, they will always be received and no unauthorized party will be able to forge your address and make it look like you’ve composed a given message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you select one of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM protection service with any domain name that you register through your brand-new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our innovative cloud hosting platform will create all the necessary records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be set up for the domain, as 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 mail servers, so whenever you send a new email, it will carry our system’s e-signature. The number of junk messages keeps increasing each year and very frequently fake email addresses are used, but when you make use of our hosting services, you and your clients or partners will not have to worry about that.
