The IP API (Application Programming Interface) gives you access to most of our tools programmatically. You must be a registered member to access the Application Programming Interface. Membership is broken down into three tiers: Bronze, Silver, and Gold.
- Bronze members (Free) get one API key with 24 calls per day.
- Silver members ($10 per year) get one API key with 120 calls per day.
- Gold members ($25 per year) get ten separate API keys. Gold level keys are allowed 1,440 calls per day (one per minute) for a total of 14,400 calls per day (ten per minute).
Go to your account page to complete key generation and management. The Application Programming Interface URLs are shown within the API Quick Start Guide and the full API Documentation, which can be found from your account page.
