Frequently asked questions

What is a web scraping API?

A web scraping API is software that retrieves data from a URL with the help of an API call. It helps establish a connection between a user and a web server to access and extract data.

What type of data can I extract with Web Scraper API?

Web Scraper API can deliver the HTML code of the page. Additionally, it leverages the JavaScript rendering feature to retrieve required HTML from websites utilizing JavaScript for dynamic content loading. The Custom Parser feature can also be used to obtain data in JSON format.

Can I automate recurring scraping jobs with Web Scraper API?

Yes, we offer the free Scheduler feature for all Scraper APIs. You can automate your recurring scraping jobs by scheduling them. Simply put, you don't need to send new requests with identical parameters to receive regular updates of the same public data. Also, there's no need to create or maintain your scheduling scripts. Check our documentation to learn more about the Scheduler feature.

How long does Web Scraper API take to give the results back?

Web Scraper API can deliver real-time results from almost any website worldwide. The delivery time highly depends on a requested target. For more details regarding specific targets, please get in touch with your Account Manager or contact our support team.

Is it legal to scrape a website?

Web scraping services may be legal in cases where it is done without breaching any laws regarding the source targets or data itself. We have explored this subject in one of our blog posts, and we highly recommend that you read it and consult with your legal advisor before any scraping project to avoid any potential risks.

How to use a web scraping API?

Using Web Scraper API consists of three main steps. First, you put together a request, adding the necessary information, like the endpoint URL, user credentials, and the payload. Second, you send the request to the API. Finally, you receive the result – you can retrieve them via the API or get them delivered to the storage solution of your choice. To see how Web Scraper API looks in action, check out our video here.

What is the difference between a scraper and a parser?  

While scrapers and parsers go hand-in-hand, they have different functionalities. Simply put, scrapers retrieve the information from the web, while parsers focus on analyzing text based on predefined rules and syntax.

Does Web Scraper API have rate limits? 

Yes, Web Scraping API comes with a specific job submission rate limit. The rate at which you can submit jobs depends on your plan size. For example, the free plan comes with 5K results, you can submit 5 total jobs per second, and for rendered jobs, you can submit one job per second. On the other hand, Web Scraper API can bypass rate limiting that websites implement as anti-bot measures.

To see the specifics for each plan, please refer to our documentation.

Is Web Scraper API ISO certified?

Yes, Web Scraper API is ISO/IEC 27001:2017 certified. This certification demonstrates our commitment to maintaining a robust Information Security Management System (ISMS) that adheres to internationally recognized standards for data security. To learn more about what ISO/IEC 27001:2017 certification means for our product and users, please read here.
