DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for validating the genuineness of an email message by using an electronic signature. When DKIM is activated for a given domain name, a public cryptographic key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is kept on the mail server. If a new email is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the message is delivered, the signature is authenticated by the incoming email server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily distinguish if the email message is genuine or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will occur if the content of the email message has been modified in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or removed. This authentication system will enhance your email security, since you can confirm the genuineness of the important emails that you get and your partners can do the same with the email messages that you send them. Based on the given email provider’s policies, an email that fails the test may be erased or may appear in the receiver’s inbox with a warning.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud hosting plans that we are offering without the need to do anything specific, because the compulsory records for using this validation system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account via the Hepsia Control Panel. If the particular domain uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be generated and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send periodic messages to clients or business collaborators, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to spoof your address and make it look like you’ve composed a certain message.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
All needed DomainKeys Identified Mail records will be created automatically by our cloud web hosting platform when you add a domain name as hosted in your semi-dedicated server account, so if you choose to use this type of hosting, you will not have to configure anything to be able to take advantage of the email validation system. The domain name should use our name servers in order for its DNS records to be managed on our end and provided that this prerequisite is fulfilled, a private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers and a public key will be published to the global DNS system by a special TXT resource record. All addresses that you create using the domain name will be protected by DKIM, which will make it impossible for 3rd parties to fake any email address. Both you and your associates or clients can take advantage of this functionality, since it will ensure a higher security level for your electronic communication.
