API Rate Limiting

We have introduced a rate limit on the amount of calls an account can make to our API to automatically shorten URLs.

This was unfortunately necessary after some accounts had been abusing this service.

Currently the limit is 60 per minute, 3600 per hour and 86400 per day. After this, the API will return to you an error message.

If you need to request a higher limit please contact us:

and specify your website address and the reason for needing high volume API access.

We will evaluate the limit on a case by case basis. Thank you for your understanding.
