Talking trash to the API will make it talk trash back at you. Here are a couple insults to get you prepared.

{"error":{"code":400,"message":"ERROR : Input string is not a well-formed domain name."}}

{"error":{"code":400,"message":"ERROR : Input string is not a valid IP address."}}


The service is free and open for anyone to use, just like it used to be.


If you use the API in production, consider leaving your email address with us - we promise to only send crucial updates concerning the API and notices in case of downtime. We're talking one to three emails a year.
