What's an API?
API is an abbrevation for Application Programming Interface. For a deeper explanation, read more about APIs on Wikipedia.
The Eniro API at api.eniro.com is a way for your site to access to Eniro's company data. By crafting a specific request to our servers, you'll get a consistent response back. The Eniro API defines which questions you can ask us and which responses you'll get back.
You'll also get the added benefit of consistency. You won't be affected if we make changes to Eniro's backend services, since we are also bound by the API. As long as you ask a correctly formatted question, you'll get a proper answer back. We will of course add new features in the future, and to use them you may need to update your code now and then.
Anyone can sign up for a free basic account. A basic account can access what we believe most people need, with a limit of 10,000 requests per month.
