Data Sources and APIs
Public IP Address
We provide a specific page that returns just the IP address of the device making the request on http://bot.whatismyipaddress.com. You are free to query that server but please limit queries to no more than once per five minutes. While rate limiting is currently not in place if the service is abused it will be. Please do not attempt to obtain the IP address by querying the homepage of our website. Strict rate limiting is enforced there and the page is more bandwidth and processor intensive than bot.whatismyipaddress.com.
We do not provide API access to any of the geolocation data. Strict rate limiting is enforced on both the homepage and IP address detail pages. Feel free to link to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/xx.xx.xx.xx from your website or application, but please do not attempt scripted access. If you are looking for geolocation data for your website or application we suggest that you look at the product offerings from the major commercial geolocation database providers.
Proxy Server Data
At this time we do not provide API access to proxy server identification. This is a project that we are looking into. Please check back here periodically for availability.
We do not provide an API for IP blacklist status as the information can be easily obtained by performing a simple DNS query against the blacklist's name servers.
All other data points are not available from us via an API and at this time we do not expect it made available in the near future.
