Whoisology API Released Into Beta

Whoisology recently ran a survey asking for feedback about its services, and I understand that several responders requested an API. Phil from Whoisology let me know that the company just released the Whoisology API into beta, and they are currently reviewing requests for access to it.

From what I understand, the API will allow people and companies to build products and services using the Whoisology offerings as a base. I am not a tech expert, so I asked Phil for additional details about what this means for domain investors, and here’s what he told me about the potential uses for the API:

“In the domain name realm the uses will be varied. We’re still testing the API and expanding the functions built in, we expect that in the end when we do the full commercial release it will be developer friendly. It’s possible that the information that you find on Whoisology could be incorporated into many levels of the domain name industry, from domain name registrars facilitating transfers, to name spinners making suggestions on available domains to register, interesting browser and wordpress type plugins I think will make good use of the API. Really there is a lot that can be done.

The API will let people access information that hasn’t been available previously, so while we have our domainer blinders on when talking about Whoisology and the API, there is the possibility that in the right hands the API could really result in something well beyond our limited vision.”

If anyone would like to try out the Whoisology API, get in touch directly with Phil to gain access.
