Domain Availability Check API

The Domain Availability Check API will return the status of domains submitted via the API.

There are 2 versions avaialble. One for a single domain which will return just the status of the specific domain and one for multiple domains which will return the status of each domain and each version of the domain.

Single domain input parameter

Domain name (a-label or u-label):

  • /api/domain/validate?domain=<domain-name>

Multiple statuses can be displayed for a single availability check. All relevant statuses will be listed in the response.

  • Invalid – possible reasons for an invalid response are:

    • TLD: the TLD does not match the Registry TLD

    • Length: the length of the domain name is not within the configuration bounds

    • Level length: the subdomain levels are not within the configuration bounds

    • Syntax: the domain did not pass the syntax check

    • IDN: the IDN domain name contains an invalid character

Sample output:

{
    "domainName" : "testdomain.nz",

}
