This endpoint enables you to
add a sending domain which is one of the pre-requisites for sending emails.
What is a Sending Domain? And why is it required?
A Sending Domain serves as the identity of the sender of an email. The ‘From’ header should indicate the sending domain so the recipients can understand the source of the email. E.g. when you receive the sign-up confirmation email from Pepipost, the from address will include firstname.lastname@example.org. In this case, “pepipost.com” is the sending domain.
ESPs (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail etc.) check the sending domain’s DNS records to verify that Pepipost is authorized to send emails and to make sure that the emails are legitimate & not spoofing any domain.
To start sending emails to your customers, you can either use your top-level domain (example.com) or use a sub-domain (email.mycompany.com).
Domain Activation Process
Once you have added the domain to your Pepipost account, you need to follow below steps to activate your domain
- Add SPF, DKIM & Custom Envelope in your domain’s advanced DNS settings.
- Once the records are updated, answer a few questions regarding your email delivery.
Your domain & answers are submitted to our delivery experts for domain activation. Once all the checks are done, your domain will be activated and you will be notified on your registered email address.
