DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for validating the genuineness of an email using an e-signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a specific 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 issued using the private key and when the email message is delivered, the signature is ‘scanned’ by the incoming POP3/IMAP server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily discern if the email is genuine or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email message has been changed on its way as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered emails are identical and that nothing has been added or removed. This authentication system will increase your email safety, as you can confirm the legitimacy of the important emails that you receive and your colleagues can do the same with the messages that you send them. Depending on the particular email provider’s policy, an email that fails the test may be removed or may be delivered to the recipient’s inbox with a warning flag.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting
You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared web hosting service 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 website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. In case you send periodic emails to customers or business associates, they will always be received and no unauthorized party will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you have sent a particular message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All needed DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to purchase a semi-dedicated plan, you will not have to set up anything to be able to use the email validation system. The domain name must use our name servers so that its DNS resource records can be managed on our end and in case this condition is met, a private key will be created on our mail servers and a public key will be added to the global DNS database by a special TXT record. All addresses that you set up using the domain will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to forge any address. Both you and your colleagues or clients can benefit from this option, since it will ensure a much higher protection level for your online correspondence.
