DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for confirming the authenticity of an email message by using an e-signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a specific domain name, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is stored on the mail server. If a new email message is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the email message is received, that signature is validated by the incoming POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily discern if the message is genuine or if the sender’s address has been forged. A mismatch will occur if the content of the email has been altered on its way as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This email authentication system will strengthen your email security, since you can verify the legitimacy of the important email messages that you get and your associates can do likewise with the emails that you send them. Based on the particular email service provider’s adopted policy, a message that fails the examination may be erased or may end up in the receiver’s mailbox with a warning.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Web Hosting
You’ll be able to make full use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux cloud web hosting packages that we offer without doing anything specific, as the necessary records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an active web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. If you send periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you’ve composed a given message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All mandatory DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be set up automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in a semi-dedicated server account, so in case you decide to order a semi-dedicated server package, you won’t have to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email authentication system. The domain name must use our name servers so that its DNS records can be managed by us and as long as this prerequisite is fulfilled, a private encryption key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be added to the global DNS database by a special TXT record. All email addresses that you set up with the domain name will be protected by DomainKeys Identified Mail, which will make it impossible for third parties to forge any address. Both you and your colleagues or customers can take advantage of this service, since it will guarantee a higher level of protection for your electronic communication.
