Domain - Endpoint Features
Object Description
url [Required] The domain that you want to classify. (ex: https://google.com)

The URL endpoint works similarly to the Domain one. The difference is that in this endpoint you will be able to categorize a full URL path instead only the root domain. 

This endpoint will help you to retrieve the category of the URL that is passed to it. 

Just passing https://www.nytimes.com/ will give you the category "/News", because that is suitable for the root domain.

For example, this URL from the NY times https://www.nytimes.com/2022/06/30/business/stock-market-worst-start-50-years.html directs you to an article about the stock market. 

In this case, you will be receiving the category "/Finance/Investing/Stocks & Bonds"

So, let's take a look at the output this query retrieves:

URL - Endpoint Features
Object Description
url [Required] The full path URL that you want to retrieve the category and information from.

This endpoint works similarly to the Domain endpoint. 

Just pass the email domain that you want to retrieve information from. You will be able to categorize your Emails database and recognize if there is an organization that could be a target of a special offer or maybe a possible partnership, or just to recognize the business categories that conform to your emails database.
