Today we released version 2.13 of the E-HAWK Vetting Platform.
Along with new tests and enhanced analytics, we have added an additional parameter: timeout=no. Adding this to your vets will run additional tests, but can slow API response times.
Some domain testing and analysis is time consuming and can take up to four seconds to process. For example, checking the parked status on a domain in real-time requires looking at the actual hosted page. Same with link verification, seeing if the site has a real TOS or privacy statement, etc. And Whois response time can be quite slow too. So, we have added the new parameter and value of timeout=no. Just add this to your vets and our service will start running additional testing for every vet. It might slow the response time to five seconds, but you will get the extra testing.
