API

EstiBot users can now tap into our vast database using the newly available API interface. Instantly appraise, research and manipulate domains and keywords with a single API call.

The following services are currently supported via API calls, with more coming soon:

  • Appraisals
  • Domain Parsing
  • Keyword Parsing

Our API was built to scale, meaning that it supports both single and volume queries. Data returned is in custom XML format and is just as comprehensive as the data provided on our site. In some cases, the API data contains more results than we offer on our web site.

To ensure the highest level of quality, access to our API is granted only to paying customers, with limits set based on account level and user needs. Our API is capable of supporting millions of queries per day so users requiring high volume research can definitely be accommodated upon request.
