Availability check

From NETIM
Jump to: navigation, search

Before registering a domain name, you should ensure that the domain name is available for registration. To do so you need to query our DAS (Domain Availability System)

Contents

Using the API

The function domainCheck allows to check the status of one or a list of desired domain name.

You can provide several domain names separated with semicolons, for example "netim1.com;netim2.com;netim3.com" and you will receive the results for each domains.

Caution

You can't mix different extensions.
All the extensions don't accept a multiple checkDomain (see Category:Tld). In this case, you must check only one domain


Using HTTP

You can reach the URL below in order to query the availability of a particular domain name

https://www.netim.com/bin/das-web.php?login=XXXX&password=YYYY&domain=[DOMAIN]

Replace "XXXX" by your reseller ID
Replace "YYYY" by your DAS password
Replace "DOMAIN" by the domain to be queried.

Caution

For security reasons, the password is NOT your reseller account password. Please contact our support to get the DAS password

Limitations

Whatever is the method used, a reseller is by default limited to 5000 queries a day. 
This limit may be increased by contacting our support team
