Technology lookup

Find out the technology stack of any website, such as the CMS or ecommerce platform. Perform near-instant queries against our comprehensive database of millions of websites or analyse websites live for real-time results.

In addition to technologies, responses optionally include company details, verified email addresses, phone numbers, social media profiles, locale information, keywords, metadata and more.

Endpoint

GET https://api.wappalyzer.com/v2/lookup/

Properties

Property Description

Rate limit 5 requests per second (up to 10 URLs per request)
Pricing 1 credit per URL
2 credits per URL when using live=true with recursive=true

Parameters

Name Description
urls (required)

Between one and ten website URLs, comma separated.

Example: https://example.com,https://example.org.

Multiple URLs are not supported with recursive=false.

live

Scan websites in real-time. Defaults to false to return cached results from our database (faster and more complete).

If no record is found, live=true is automatically used instead. Use recursive=false to get live results in the same request.

recursive

Index multiple pages (follows internal website links for increased coverage). Defaults to true for best results.

If no record is found or live=true is used, using recursive=true causes the request to be completed asynchronously, meaning technologies will not be included in the initial response and the website is being crawled. To get the results when they become available, use callback_url or repeat the request at a later time (free for up to one hour).

A crawl can take up to 15 minutes. We recommend using callback_url or repeating the request up to three times every five minutes.

When using both live=true and recursive=true, callback_url is required and requests cost two credits instead of one.

callback_url

When an asynchronous request completes, a POST request is made to the callback URL with the results. A callback URL is an public endpoint hosted on your own server.

Example: https://yourdomain.com/wappalyzer).

Required when using both live=true and recursive=true.

sets

Comma-separated list of additional field sets to include in the results (e.g. meta,social). Some fields require an eligible plan.

See Fields.

Use all to include all fields.

denoise

Exclude low confidence results. Default to true. Setting this to false yields more results but is more likely to include false positives.

max_age

Return results that have been verified at least once in the last 1-12 months. Defaults to 2 for best results.

To get the most up-to-date but fewer results, use max_age=1. For real-time results, use live=true instead.

Use a higher value to get more but less recently verified results. These results are more likely to include websites that no longer use the technology.

Use a higher value in combination with squash=false for historic results grouped by month.

squash

Merge monthly results into a single set. Defaults to true. Set to false to group results by month.

Callback

A callback URL is a public endpoint hosted on your own server. If you request a domain that we haven't seen before, you'll initially get an empty response while the website is being indexed. Minutes later, your callback URL will receive a POST request with the final results. Without a callback URL, you will not get these results unless you make another request or use recursive=false to peform a shallow scan.
