Getting started

Deliver email messages reliably atscale

YCloud Email is a faster and simpler way for large-scale delivery, suitable for sending transactional and marketing emails. Better than sending with a personal email address, you can have an unlimited sending quota, and avoid being marked as spam.
If you are building an app, then you’ll primarily be interacting with the web API, which is the fastest, most flexible, and most secure option we offer. Once you’ve built the integration with our Web API, you’ll see quick delivery of your email, highly configurable settings, data capabilities, and account security through API keys.

Before Getting Started

To use any YCloud product, you need to sign up for a free account.

For trial account

There are some restrictions you should know:

  • The trial account only supports sending to your own registered email.
  • The maximum daily delivery for testing is 50.
  • YCloud offers an address [email protected] for you to test, but this address only supports sending to your own registered email whether you were an upgraded account or not. You can try it from the Getting started page or API doc.

Set up a domain

Add and verify your official domain. You'll need to prepare a domain with which you will send emails. With your DNS provider (e.g. GoDaddy, Rackspace, Cloudflare, Route53, etc.). You can add DNS records provided by YCloud to your DNS entries. These entries are known as SPF and DKIM records.
That domain will be the address that appears in the From field for your recipients.
