The API performs several domain infrastructure analyses, including:

  • WHOIS Domain Check

    Domain Reputation API accesses an extensive repository of WHOIS records and lets you know if the domain’s registrant contact details are redacted or publicly available. It also analyzes its registrant country and checks if it is considered offshore.

  • MX Record Configuration Analysis

    The tool analyzes main infrastructure servers, including MX records. It checks several parameters, such as Domain-Based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) and Sender Policy Framework (SPF) settings.

  • SSL Vulnerability Check

    The tool analyzes the domain’s SSL configurations. It warns you if any parameter is not up to standards, including HTTP Strict Transport Security, TLS Authentication (TLSA), and Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) stapling.

  • NS Record Configuration Tests

    NS is another infrastructure server Domain Reputation API analyzes. The tool warns you if configurations do not meet best practices.

  • SSL Certificate Validity

    Domain Reputation API checks the domain’s SSL certificate and informs you if it is invalid or has expired.

  • Malware Database Check

    Domain Reputation API scans various malware engines to look for the Internet asset. If found, the tool lets you know so you can avoid accessing the malicious property.
