Additional Dedicated IP Addresses


Improve deliverability by sending mail over IP addresses reserved exclusively for you. Customers often add additional IP addresses to:

  • Spread high-volume email traffic across more addresses, so that inbox providers don’t throttle your mail.
  • Send marketing and transactional email on different addresses, so that transactional mail is more likely to land in the inbox.
  • Separate mail for different products or customers over different IPs, so that their reputations don’t affect each other.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does SendGrid work?

SendGrid is a cloud-based SMTP provider that acts as an email delivery engine, allowing you to send email without the cost and complexity of maintaining your own email servers. SendGrid manages the technical details of email delivery, like infrastructure scaling, ISP outreach, reputation monitoring, and real-time analytics.

How can I send my email through SendGrid?

You can send your email through SendGrid using any of the following integrations, or a combination of them:

1. SMTP Relay: This is a great option if you’re looking for a delivery engine to work behind the scenes with your own application or another tool. SMTP relay is the standard protocol for sending email, and is a typical solution for customers who would like to increase deliverability while setting up their email in a third party application.

2. Web API: Designed for customers who need to programmatically send email through their own applications. This method is typically used for transactional messages, like password reset emails and order confirmations, but can be used for any message type.

3. Marketing Campaigns: This toolset is designed to help you send marketing email. It allows you to upload and manage recipient lists, build or upload your own HTML email templates, and then schedule and send your email campaigns through SendGrid. This option works well for bulk, newsletter-type sends.

Learn more: Web API vs. SMTP Relay, Marketing Campaigns Documentation

Do I have to sign up for separate API and Marketing Campaigns accounts?

No! You can send via API or through Marketing Campaigns within the same SendGrid account. You'll have one email plan to use to send any type of email. If you send your marketing email through Marketing Campaigns, you'll simply pay an additional cost of $10/10,000 contacts you store (after your first 2,000 contacts which are free!).

How does SendGrid measure the number of emails sent?

Every time you make a request to send one message to one recipient, it is counted by SendGrid as a message sent, regardless of the message being deferred or sent to spam.
