We have added a new feature to our already feature-rich email verification service: domain-only verification. This new feature allows you to verify domains alone (such as gmail.com). In addition to finding out if the domain is real and active, we also give you “who-is” data, which includes information like the address of the company behind the domain, when the domain was registered, and if the domain is available to buy.
Domain-only verification is useful for business analysis tasks, such as gathering information about client companies in a B2B setting, or simply choosing a home for your new website. This feature returns the same information you would receive from us when our WhoIsLookup option is enabled. However, now you can get the same information without needing a full email address.
Using this feature requires no special preparation on your part, other than having a domain to verify. Simply pass us a domain the exact same way you would an email, and our system automatically handles it appropriately. When verifying a domain, you will receive a simple result code indicating if the domain is valid, and all available who-is data.
Additionally, the responses are in the exact same format as our email verification responses, only with blanked out values in any email-related fields. This means that this feature will not break any existing implementation that uses our email verification.
For more information on using this new feature, please refer to our documentation.
Also, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our tech support with any further questions or concerns.
