DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for checking the genuineness of an email message by using an e-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 stored on the email server. When a new message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email message is delivered, the signature is ‘scanned’ by the incoming server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily tell if the email message is legitimate or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email has been modified on its way as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received email messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or deleted. This authentication system will enhance your email safety, since you can verify the legitimacy 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 service provider’s adopted policies, an email that fails to pass the examination may be removed or may be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox with a warning alert.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each cloud website hosting plans that we are offering without having to do anything in particular, because the mandatory records for using this authentication system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain to an existing account using the Hepsia Control Panel. As long as the specific 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 global DNS database. In case you send periodic messages to clients or business allies, they’ll always be received and no unsolicited individual will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you have sent a certain email message.
