So I've been experimenting with Node.js a lot lately, and one of the things I'm trying to do is send emails when certain things in my node scripts happen. I don't want to have to keep checking up on my servers so I'd like them to come let me know whatever stuff they can send me that I care about. By connecting your own domain you'll be able to send from other email addresses than the default firstname.lastname@example.org.
This isn't an all-out "How to Send Emails with Node.js" post, but it's the setup for it. It seems like if you want to not be immediately sent to the spam folder, you have to go through some "partner website" to send them. Of course, you'll also need to get a domain through a domain host. For these I chose SparkPost and GoDaddy, respectively. They are both pretty well known and highly rated websites in their industries, and I have no complaints so far using them. The real reason I chose these is because there is a very awesome video tutorial on setting up your domain with Go Daddy on Youtube, and I've included it below:
Using this tutorial I was very easily able to connect sparkpost with GoDaddy to use my domain: ng-nl.org (an Angular group website for New Jersey!).
