Automation Rules

We welcome programmers who incorporate our site into their work, however as of late we have experienced some abuse of our rules. We thought some people may not be familiar with our rules concerning automated files so we thought it best to post a page for easy reference.

  • We ask that automated files hit our site no more then once every five minutes or once every 300 seconds.
  • Please set your program's user agent to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:12.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/12.0 , this will keep your program from being blocked by CloudFlare
  • We have a special automation script just for the purpose of helping programmers. You can learn more about it here under the 'Gold or Enterprise' account type.
  • If you need to use the automation page more often than this, contact us and we can work something out.
  • You can reach us at automation(at)whatismyip(.)com.
