DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for checking the legitimacy of an email by using an electronic signature. When DKIM is activated for a specific domain, a public encryption key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is stored on the email server. When a new email is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the message is delivered, the signature is authenticated by the incoming POP3/IMAP server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily tell if the email is genuine or if the sender’s address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email has been edited in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This validation system will boost your email safety, as you can validate the legitimacy of the important email messages that you get and your associates can do likewise with the emails that you send them. Based on the given mail service provider’s policy, an email message that fails the test may be removed or may appear in the receiver’s inbox with a warning alert.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Hosting
You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each and every hosting that we’re offering without having to do anything in particular, because the compulsory records for using this validation system are set up automatically by our web hosting platform when you add a domain name to an active account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the specific domain uses our NS records, a private cryptographic 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 database. In case you send out periodic email messages to clients or business partners, they will always be delivered and no unauthorized person will be able to forge your email address and make it seem like you have composed a given message.
