DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for checking the genuineness of an email message by using an e-signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is enabled for a given domain, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is stored on the mail server. If a new message is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the message is delivered, the signature is checked by the incoming POP3/IMAP email server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily recognize if the email is authentic or if the sender’s email address has been spoofed. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email message has been changed in the meantime as well, so DKIM can also be used to ensure that the sent and the delivered email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or erased. This validation system will strengthen your email safety, as you can verify the genuineness of the important email messages 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 policy, an email that fails the examination may be erased or may appear in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
You will be able to make use of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each Linux hosting that we are offering without needing to do anything in particular, as the mandatory records for using this authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain to an active hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the given domain uses our name server records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and stored on our email servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS database. In case you send regular messages to customers or business associates, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you have composed a certain email message.
