How often do you backup?
We do several backups a day on a separate server (amazon S3) and we also create another extra backup every week and we store this one on a different account on amazon S3, just in case.
We store the latest 8 days of the hourly backups and the latest 2 months of the weekly backups. You data is completely secure. The frequency of backup will depend of the account you choose.

It is different. We offer a different product that applies to some users that cannot afford the huge costs from Mailchimp or others tools and that they not need all the features mailchimp offer.

What is the difference between the shared hosting and the private hosting?
You will have your own Sendy install on all the accounts. The main difference is that on the Shared Sendy Host you share the same VPS server with other users and you have some limits on emails because of the limitation of the resources on the server. On the private VPS Sendy Host you will have your own server with your own Sendy install just for yourself. You can do whatever you want on it, you can even resell space to your clients if you want too!
What do I need to get a SendyHost account?
You will need a Sendy License and one Amazon SES account and that´s all. We will help you to setup your account and to configure Amazon SES.
Can I use my own domain to login on the platform?
Only if you use a private VPS SendyHost. We will configure the shared SendyHost for a subdomain on *.sendyhost.com. If you prefer to use your own subdomain you need a Startup Account.
We will provide the SSL certificate so your SendyHost is secure. We will help you on the whole process.
Will other users affect my delivery rates?
The Shared Sendy host server has been prepared to handle all the users and emails but if a lot of users decided to send theirs emails at the same time, the server could be affected. If you are worried about this, you should consider to get a private VPS SendyHost account so your delivery rate will only depends on your own mail server provider.
Will other users affect my reputation or complain rate?
No. On the shared SendyHost we monitor all clients and we will remove all accounts that does not comply with the spam policy.
