January Tech News: Beta Testers Wanted for New Product
Want to contribute to ZeroBounce’s innovations? We’re looking for beta testers for a new product. Your input matters a lot to us.
It’s time for another ZeroBounce Tech News update. Our mantra for 2023 is complete innovation, new products and higher accuracy at faster speeds for email validation.
ZeroBounce beta testers wanted
We’ve been teasing a new product, and the API is coming in February.
But we need your help!
If you’re interested in joining the beta program to help us test it, please contact our support team.
ZeroBounce 2.0 arrives in February
ZeroBounce 2.0 will officially launch in the first week of February. The new platform brings a smooth, modern user experience and superior performance.
Please be aware that we’ll be performing a five-hour maintenance at the following time:
- Friday, February 3rd at 23:00 PST to February 4th, 4:00 PST
The website members’ section and bulk API will be unavailable. It will not impact the real-time API.
A new validation status
We have a new sub-status: alternate.
An alternate email is valid, but is likely a secondary email for the user. People use secondary emails to sign up for accounts or promotions but generally demonstrate low engagement.
Unlike a formal, primary address, alternate emails usually contain numbers or more special characters, e.g.,email@example.com. Identifying alternate email addresses allows for better email list segmentation as primary addresses are more active.
API Version 1 deprecation
Deprecation of the Version 1 email validation API has begun.
We expect V1 to reach its end of life on May 1st, 2023. If you still use Version 1, you should upgrade to Version 2 to avoid interruptions. This will not impact current Version 2 users. You have the most up-to-date integration, and no further action is needed.
We already have a lot in store for 2023, but more ongoing projects will come.
As a preview – our Free List Evaluator tool will arrive soon. Use it to gain vital insights about your email lists for free with a simple upload.
Thank you for being a part of ZeroBounce. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact me anytime.
