DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for confirming the legitimacy of an email message by using an electronic signature. When DKIM is activated for a particular domain name, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the mail server. If a new message is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the email message is received, that signature is checked by the receiving server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily tell if the email message is authentic or if the sender’s address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email has been modified on its way as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or deleted. This email authentication system will boost your email safety, since you can confirm the legitimacy of the important emails that you receive and your associates can do likewise with the email messages that you send them. Depending on the particular mail service provider’s adopted policies, a message that fails the test may be removed or may show up in the receiver’s mailbox with a warning symbol.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting
You will be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every Linux shared packages that we are offering without having to do anything specific, as the required records for using this email validation system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS database. If you send out regular emails to customers or business collaborators, they’ll always be received and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your address and make it look like you’ve sent a given email message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages come with DKIM activated by default, so in case you select a semi-dedicated server plan and you add a domain using our name servers via your Hepsia Control Panel, the records required for the authentication system will be set up automatically – a private key on our mail servers for the digital signature and a TXT record carrying the public key for the global DNS database. Since the protection is set up for a particular domain name, all e-mail addresses created using it will have a signature, so you will not have to worry that the emails that you send may not reach their target email address or that someone may fake any of your addresses and try to spam/scam people. This may be very essential in case you rely on email communication in your business, since your associates and/or clients will be able to distinguish genuine emails from spoofed ones.
