Domain Web Services

Welcome to domainAPI

DomainAPI offers cloud based webservices, that regroup all major lookup, data and transaction functions of the domain name industry. DomainAPI taps into the world’s leading Whois providers (like DomainTools), into the world’s registries, into registrars capable of providing worldwide domain availability check services (like EuroDNS) and into the major aftermarket places.

A wide range of domain API services are already available (listed here below), and you can expect that over the next months several additional APIs in relation with the secondary market will be added.

To help you implement the DomainAPI webservices into your portals, web, desktop or mobile applications, we have published several API wrappers for different languages (PHP, Java, …) under the MIT License. The wrappers are described in the resource section of our website, and the source code is shared on GitHub.
