IP Reputation API

With this IP Reputation API you can detect potentially malicious IP addresses commonly used
for spam, to attack websites or to commit fraudulent activities. Payment providers and
merchants can use this API to prevent fraudulent transactions and reduce losses. For example, e-commerce owners can integrate this API within the registration form or on
checkout page to identify malicious IP addresses and block the user.
From March 2024 the API supports also IPv6 addresses.

Check Reputation of IP Addresses

This API is the perfect solution to check the safety reputation of an IPv4 or IPv6 address.
If you need to know if an IP address is involved in spam, malware and other fraudulent activities
or if it is used as a proxy, then this API can come in handy.

List of IP Blacklists

Multiple IP Blacklists

We use multiple IP blacklists and DNSBL services to help you identify malicious IP addresses. This is good to get the reputation of an IP address and know if an IP address should be blocked. We use public and proprietary IP blacklists, you can view the engines used and detection rate.

Detect Proxy IP Addresses

Detect Proxy IPs

With this IP Reputation API you can check if an IP address is known to be a public proxy (is_proxy), a web proxy (is_webproxy), a VPN anonymizer (is_vpn), a Tor node (is_tor) or a hosting/datacenter provider (is_hosting). These additional information should help you decide if the user's IP address should be blocked.

Prevent Fraudulent Transactions
