DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for confirming the legitimacy of an email message by using an electronic signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a given domain, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the email server. If a new email is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the email message is received, the signature is authenticated by the incoming server using the public key. In this way, the recipient can easily tell if the email is genuine or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email has been changed in the meantime as well, so DKIM can also be used to ensure that the sent and the delivered messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or deleted. This validation system will strengthen your email safety, since you can verify the genuineness of the important emails that you get and your associates can do the exact same thing with the emails that you send them. Depending on the given mail service provider’s policy, an email message that fails to pass the examination may be removed or may reach the receiver’s mailbox with a warning symbol.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Web Hosting

You will be able to take advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux web hosting that we’re offering without the need to do anything specific, as the compulsory records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an active web hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the given domain uses our name server records, a private key will be created and kept on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. If you send regular emails to customers or business allies, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to spoof your email address and make it seem like you’ve composed a given message.
