Registrars and Resellers
The Domainr API provides instant autocomplete results for domain registrars and resellers. You can use it to supplement your search boxes with instant results, while preserving your existing search landing pages.
Using the Domainr API is simple and straightforward—a web developer can have it working in just a few minutes:
- Use a Mashape key, or
client_idif your usage will be high-volume.
- Send us your
zones.txtfile URL; see below for details.
Search results can be restricted to only include top-level domains you support; we maintain an internal mapping of supported TLDs, keyed by registrars' domain names.
To keep your listing current, publish a
zones.txt file at the root of your website (e.g. https://dnsimple.com/zones.txt), listing your supported TLDs separated by newlines. Domainr will automatically ingest this file several times per day, to keep our internal mapping up to date.
Email us the URL of your file, so that we can add it to the Domainr backend.
Here’s an example:

Note: The TLDs in your
zones.txt file should be a strict subset of the primary list at zonedb.org.
