The NameScan API is organized around REST. Our API has predictable, resource-oriented URLs, and uses HTTP response codes to indicate API errors. JSON is returned by all API responses, including errors, although our API libraries convert responses to appropriate language-specific objects. API Doc

Developer Centre

The NameScan API Developer centre is designed to help with testing the API using a real API key. To make the API testing easier, each account has a test and production key. Requests made with test API Key never hit your credit and are not saved in your scan history. Before beginning your test, you should get your API key. Developer Centre
