Company Domains

Company domain check

The service tests whether an email address belongs to a domain representing a company.

Syntax /svc/2.0/address/companydomain/<address>
Example /svc/2.0/address/companydomain/
Parameter An ASCII email address as last part of the URL




{"infoId": "", "result": 1}
  • result: the evaluation result
    • 0: no company domain found
    • 1: company domain found
  • infoId: if result == 1, this contains the ID (domain name) for looking up more information about a company domain resource.


If a match is found a positive result (1) is returned. The ID of the matching entry, the domain name, is also returned for further lookup.

Information about a company domain resource

The company info API call returns information about company resources.

Syntax /svc/2.0/info/companydomain/<id>
Example /svc/2.0/info/companydomain/
Parameter An ID (domain name) as the last part of the URL

The company domain resources contain descriptions that are language-specific, the economic classifications. To get these descriptions in a specific language, add a HTTP Accept-language header to the request. The service will then return the descriptions in the requested language, if available, otherwise in the default language defined for each schema.


<orgName>Bar.Com GmbH</orgName> 
<addressStreet>Barstrasse 11</addressStreet> 
    <description>Herstellung von Kraftwagen und Kraftwagenteilen</description>
</ classifications> 


"orgName":"Bar.Com GmbH", 
"addressStreet":"Barstrasse 11", 
"countryCode": "de", 
"addressLatitude": 11.000001, 
"addressLongitude": 49.111110, 
"classifications": [ 
  {"id":"34","text":"Herstellung von Kraftwagen und Kraftwagenteilen", "type": "wz2003", "lang": "de"} 


The structure of the result document is:


If no data is available for an ID the server will signal this with HTTP response code 204 (No Content) and return no result (null).

The descriptive texts are available in different languages. The service will try to find the best match for the language specified in the Accept-language header, or fall back to a default language if it cannot.

The available language editions are:

  • wz2003: default = de, available = de
  • wz2008: default = en, available = de, en
  • nace2: default = en, available = bg, cs, da, de, el, en, es, et, fi, fr, hu, it, lt, lv, mt, nl, no, pl, pt, ro, ru, sk, sl, sv, tr
  • isic4: default = en, available = en, es, fr
