DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for validating the legitimacy of an email message using an electronic signature. When DKIM is activated for a specific domain name, 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 message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the message is received, the signature is checked by the incoming mail server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily distinguish 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 edited in the meantime 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 added or deleted. This email validation system will enhance your email safety, since you can verify the legitimacy of the important emails that you get and your colleagues can do the exact same thing with the messages that you send them. Based on the particular email provider’s policies, an email message that fails to pass the test may be removed or may enter the receiver’s mailbox with a warning notification.

You’ll be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud hosting plans that we offer without needing to do anything in particular, as the necessary records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing web hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain uses our NS records, a private encryption key will be issued and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send regular email messages to customers or business allies, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you’ve written a certain message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
