DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for confirming the legitimacy of an email by using a digital signature. When DKIM is activated for a certain domain, a public cryptographic key is published to the global Domain Name System and a private one is stored 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 checked by the incoming email server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily tell if the message is legitimate or if the sender’s address has been forged. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email has been edited on its way as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to ensure that the sent and the received messages are identical and that nothing has been added or removed. This email validation system will enhance your email security, since you can verify the genuineness of the important email messages that you get and your associates can do the same with the messages that you send them. Based on the particular mail service provider’s adopted policies, a message that fails to pass the check may be erased or may enter the receiver’s inbox with a warning notification.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud website hosting that we’re offering without needing to do anything specific, as the mandatory records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain name in question uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be generated and kept on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send periodic email messages to clients or business associates, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve written a particular email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All compulsory DKIM records will be created automatically by our cloud platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so in case you choose to buy a semi-dedicated hosting package, you will not have to configure anything to be able to use the email authentication system. The domain name must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed on our end and if this precondition is matched, a private key will be generated on our email servers and a public key will be published to the Domain Name System by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you create using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to spoof any email address. Both you and your associates or customers can benefit from this service, since it will guarantee a higher level of security for your online communication.
