DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for verifying the authenticity of an email message by using an electronic signature. When DKIM is activated for a specific domain, a public 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 is received, the signature is validated by the incoming server using the public key. In this way, the recipient can easily discern if the email message is legitimate or if the sender’s address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email message has been altered in the meantime as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received emails are identical and that nothing has been attached or deleted. This validation system will boost your email safety, as you can validate the genuineness of the important email messages that you receive and your associates can do the exact same thing with the messages that you send them. Depending on the given email provider’s adopted policies, an email message that fails to pass the check may be deleted or may reach the recipient’s inbox with a warning flag.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting

You will be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each hosting that we are offering without doing anything specific, since the necessary records for using this email validation system are created automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active web hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our NS records, a private key will be created and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. In case you send periodic emails to customers or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your address and make it look like you have sent a certain email message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you pick one of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DKIM protection service with any domain that you register through your brand new account without any manual setup, as our outstanding cloud platform will set up all the needed records automatically, provided that the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT record to be created for the domain name, as this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS system. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send out a new message, it will have our system’s digital signature. The number of unsolicited bulk emails keeps increasing every year and rather frequently fake email addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your customers or colleagues will not need to bother about that.
