DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for confirming the genuineness of an email using a digital signature. When DKIM is activated for a certain domain name, a public encryption key is published to the global Domain Name System and a private one is kept on the mail server. If a new email message 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 email server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily tell if the email is legitimate or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email message has been edited on its way as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered emails are identical and that nothing has been attached or deleted. This email authentication system will boost your email safety, as you can validate the genuineness of the important emails that you receive and your partners can do the exact same thing with the emails that you send them. Based on the particular mail service provider’s adopted policies, a message that fails the examination may be erased or may emerge in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning notification.

As long as the particular domain name uses our name server records, a private encryption key will be created and stored on our mail 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 allies, they will always be delivered and no unsolicited party will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you’ve composed a certain email message.

The number of unsolicited bulk messages keeps rising every year and very frequently counterfeit addresses are used, but when you make use of our web hosting services, you and your customers or partners will not have to worry about that.
