Environment keys

Every account has two API keys associated with it - the Test key and the Production key. The Production key can be used to search any requested names, and requests using the Production key will be tracked according to your account's subscription plan - the key can be used freely within your account's Monthly free requests limit, visible on the Dashboard. After this limit is reached, a fixed metered price will be applied to each subsequent request. The Test key can be used without incurring costs and does not count towards your account's Monthly free requests limit. However, the Test key can only be used to search for information about specific names.

Valid Test key names

The following names can be used to do free requests using the Test API key.
