Force email verification before account provisioning

David H shared this idea 3 months ago
Under Consideration

I run a two week free trial period for my hosting. It seems this is getting abused now and with no conversions. Most do not bother to verify their email address and I think the sign up is spam related.

As an added step before a free hosting period is provisioned it would be useful to insist that the email must be verified to cut down on fake signups. I cannot see an option for this currently.

Can this please be introduced.

This it something that we would also like to see implemented.

I agree about forcing email verification. I'm extremely surprised by how many users DON'T want to confirm their email (they've been clients for years though!).

Agree.

But free services should exclude, like yoqmail, freemail.

I have again had another run of registrations with emails that do not exist. One even an attempt at a paid service that failed at the checkout card capture.

Any update on this please?

Don't know why this wasn't added when they added the basic email verification - this would prevent a lot of SPAM orders and shouldn't be a lot of work.

This would definitely cut down on spam registrations! Please consider implementing this!
