DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for confirming the genuineness of an email using an e-signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a certain domain name, a public key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is stored on the mail server. If a new email is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the email message is delivered, that signature is validated by the POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily recognize if the message is legitimate or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will occur 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 email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or removed. This authentication system will strengthen your email security, as you can confirm the legitimacy of the important emails that you receive and your associates can do the exact same thing with the email messages that you send them. Based on the particular email provider’s adopted policies, a message that fails the examination may be erased or may appear in the receiver’s mailbox with a warning.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to take full advantage of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux cloud plans that we offer without the need to do anything specific, as the required records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing hosting account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the particular domain uses our name server records, a private key will be issued and stored on our email servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send out regular email messages to customers or business associates, they’ll always be delivered and no unsolicited person will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have composed a particular email message.
