Quotas & Rate Limits

Billing and request handling mechanisms we use.


All API subscription levels come with quotas. Once the monthly quota is reached you will receive HTTP/1.1 429 errors. We will also notify you when you are approaching your quota or if it is projected that you will exceed your API usage quota at your current usage rate.

To prevent inadvertent downtime for your application we recommend configuring auto-billing to start before you hit your monthly quota.

Rate limiting

Each account is rate limited to a specific amount of requests per second. If your account is throttled, its rate limit will be reset after a one-second interval. Your implementation should expect and be able to handle this by waiting a second before making additional requests.



We recommend to deploy caching mechanisms when frequently querying the same resource (such as domain or IP), for example when parsing log-files.
