Our server infrastructure is not suited for large scale api calls. In order to keep this service free for all users, we would appreciate if you would restrain from invoking our api if your app is a large scale deployment (see also our terms
). For such apps you should either set up your own dedicated server, or invoke one of the commercial providers.
Setting up your own server can be as simple as creating a file with
extension on your webserver with enabled php interpreter and inserting
<?php echo $_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"]; ?>
The output will be identical to a query of our plain text api.
