About WhoAPI

"Let's create a landing page, and see what happens! We don't have to build entire infrastructure or code anything before we see if anyone is prepared to pay for this service."

That's how we started. With a landing page, taking pre-orders back in 2011. There was no company, and the website wasn't even WhoAPI.com.

One backlink and one micro Google AdWords campaign changed all that. However, in all honesty, my business partner at the time, and I didn't know what we were getting into.

Angel and venture capital funding

In 2012, 500 Startups, Isaac Saldana, and other investors and partners financed creating our first API versions, server infrastructure, website, forming the company and everything else involved in getting the company off the ground.

This happened in spectacular fashion as our pitch won the Geeks on a plane conference and we went to Sillicon Valley for our incubation program. Even the president of a small country from EU (Croatia) witnessed this. Although exciting, it wasn't enough to sustain a viable business.

Why we persevered

It's amazing how many lives were impacted by the Internet, eCommerce and everything else involved on the web. To contribute even in a small way is great privilege and satisfaction. So many domain names, websites and other moving parts that have the potential to do so much good! But also, at the same time, so much bad! On top of that, so many things go wrong!

We need all the help we can get, and software, automation, AI can certainly play their role! But it is up to us to arm them with data, intelligence and proper resources! That way, we can spot dangers, opportunities and not mix the two.

In the end, we are a business, and money keeps us going. However, working with such diverse companies gives us so much more. It gives us purpose and you can't put a price tag on that.

The industry

Without being too philosophical, I think everybody can appreciate that without a good challenge life would quickly become too boring. Our industry has shown over the years that it always have a new challenge!

Privacy concerns, data size, more domains, more websites, more criminals, new technologies while at the same time clients are becoming more demanding. This keeps us going, and hopefully, we can add value going forward as we prepare for our 10 year anniversary.

Our team is commited to a constant and never-ending improvement,
