How to Get Started with Our Email Verification API.

Our email verification API will allow you to validate email addresses in milliseconds. Once you get implemented you will be able to quickly identify if the data your user is supplying is accurate. In many cases, the end user simply made a typo, which you can then prompt them to correct.

Before you can access the API you will need to create an account to access your api key and you will need to plug in a trusted domain.

Secure Your Account with a Trusted Domain

After you have your account setup with us we will first need you to secure your account before you get access to your API key. You can do this by logging into your XVerify dashboard, then clicking on the “My Account Tab”. Look for the area that says “Your Trusted Domains” Click “add” and plug in the domain name of the web properties you plan to use data verifications on. Don’t forget to save your changes.
