DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for verifying the legitimacy of an email message by using an e-signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a specific domain, a public encryption 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 issued using the private key and when the email message is received, the signature is checked by the POP3/IMAP server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily know if the email is legitimate or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email message has been changed on its way as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered email messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or erased. This email authentication system will increase your email safety, since you can verify the genuineness of the important email messages that you get and your colleagues can do the exact same thing with the email messages that you send them. Based on the given email service provider’s adopted policies, a message that fails the test may be deleted or may appear in the receiver’s mailbox with a warning.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared hosting that we’re offering without doing anything in particular, because the needed records for using this validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account via the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific domain uses our NS records, a private key will be issued and kept on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send periodic messages to clients or business associates, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve composed a certain message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you opt for any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering, you will be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail protection service with any domain name that you register through your brand new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our avant-garde cloud hosting platform will set up all the mandatory records automatically, on the condition that the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public encryption key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our email servers, so every time you send a new email message, it will carry our platform’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk email messages keeps increasing each year and very often fake addresses are used, but when you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates will not need to bother about that.
