Domain Audit Status Service
The Domain Audit Status Service lets you check whether or not specific domains are on the AppNexus platform and, if so, how AppNexus has classified them. This service is particularly useful for sellers who are interested in migrating domains onto the platform but first want to make sure that the domains have not already been rejected by AppNexus. Also, since audited domains generally see more fill, sellers can use this service to identify domains already on the platform that they would like AppNexus to audit.
Here's how it works:
You POST a JSON file containing the domains that you are interested in. The JSON must be formatted as follows:
AppNexus does not store the "http://" or "www." prefix for domains. Since this service will look for domains exactly as they are written in your JSON, it is therefore best not to include these prefixes in the domains you want to check.
- The response shows whether or not each domain is on the AppNexus platform and, if so, how AppNexus has audited it. For the full list of details provided about each domain in the response, see JSON Fields below.
View the audit status of one or more domains:
This is a read-only service. Although you POST a JSON file, no objects are created in the system.
For domains on the AppNexus platform, all of the following fields will be shown in the response. For domains not on the AppNexus platform, only the
found (with a value of
false) fields will be shown in the response.
The AppNexus ID for the domain.
The content category of the domain, as determined by AppNexus. If
The intended audience of the domain, as determined by AppNexus. Possible values: "mature", "young_adult", "children", or "general". If
The audit status of the domain. Possible values: "unaudited", "pending", "audited", "rejected", "unauditable", or "is_adserver".
The date and time when the domain was audited by AppNexus.
If true, the domain is on the AppNexus platform.

Determine which domains in a list have been audited
In this example, we search for two domains (auditedurl.com and notauditedurl.com). Both domains are on the platform, but information is returned only for the one that meets the query string criteria (
audit_status=audited). The domain that does not meet the query criteria is still returned in the results, but with a
found value of
false because it wasn't found with the given query.
