DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for confirming the authenticity of an email by using an e-signature. When DKIM is activated for a certain domain name, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the email server. When a new email is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the email is received, the signature is checked by the incoming server using the public key. In this way, the recipient can easily tell if the email is legitimate or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A mismatch will occur if the content of the email message has been altered in the meantime as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered emails are identical and that nothing has been added or removed. This email validation system will strengthen your email safety, as you can validate the genuineness of the important emails that you receive and your partners can do likewise with the messages that you send them. Depending on the particular mail service provider’s adopted policy, an email message that fails the test may be erased or may show up in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning flag.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You’ll be able to make the most of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every cloud plans that we are offering without having to do anything specific, as the necessary records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain name uses our name server 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 DNS database. If you send out regular messages to clients or business partners, they will always be received and no unsolicited individual will be able to spoof your address and make it seem like you’ve written a particular message.
