We created this web service originally to aid us with some projects where we needed to know the public IP of the network we were on and we've decided to open it up for general public consumption in the hope people will find a use for it.

Below are some common questions people ask, if you don't find an answer you're looking for don't hesitate to contact us.

1, 2 Although we do not charge and the service is free it's important to understand this is a shared service. We endeavour to provide an equal service to all, however under times of extreme load it's possible some requests may take longer to fulfill or even be dropped. We try to scale as demand requires and constantly monitor loads and adjust accordingly.

If you are likely to send a large number of requests to us daily and need guaranteed reliability then we can provide you with dedicated instances of our API at cost. Contact us to find out more.
