DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for confirming the legitimacy of an email by using an e-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 kept on the mail server. When a new email message is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the email is delivered, the signature is checked by the POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily discern if the message is authentic or if the sender’s email address has been spoofed. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email message has been altered on its way as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to ensure that the sent and the delivered messages are identical and that nothing has been added or removed. This email authentication system will strengthen your email security, as you can confirm the legitimacy of the important email messages that you get and your associates can do the same with the emails that you send them. Depending on the particular email service provider’s adopted policy, an email message that fails the examination may be removed or may enter the recipient’s mailbox with a warning alert.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Website Hosting

When you obtain one of the website hosting packages that we are offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled by default for any domain that you register under your shard hosting account, so you will not have to create any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom Hepsia Control Panel using our MX and NS resource records (so that the email messages associated with this domain name will be handled by our cloud platform), a private cryptographic key will be created instantly on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global Domain Name System. All addresses set up using this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send email messages such as periodic newsletters, they will reach their target destination and the receivers will know that the messages are authentic, since the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to forge your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The DomainKeys Identified Mail option is included by default with any domain that is registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain must also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our system. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is actually the public cryptographic key that confirms if a given email is legitimate or not. This record is created as soon as a brand-new domain name is registered in a semi-dedicated account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our mail servers. If you make use of our web and email hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target destination and you won’t have to worry about unauthorized people forging your email addresses for spamming or scamming purposes, which is essential if you use emails to contact your business allies.
