We wanted a really simple and powerful notification system to inform our API users about the latest state of their transactions and orders. We didn't want to make it complicated or even mandatory. It is an optional service!
Basically, if you want to know the current state of a domain order you can just call the
endpoint of the explicit domain. This will give you the current state of the domain. In some cases a
domain order might take a while due to a manual registration process or missing documents the owner has to
provide first. In the worst case the domain could be in this status for some days. Using GET domain this
would mean a lot of requests to the API - not comfortable for both of us.
Instead you could just call the
GET notification message
endpoint where we are providing all information about pending orders, failed creates or transfers for a
domain. We are still improving the system adding new use cases for the notification system on a daily basis.
A current example where using the notification system makes sense would be that you want to register a whole
bunch of domains. Just send them in - and request information on the domain orders over the notification
When ordering a domain via the
endpoint we are responding with a success message unless there is an error in the request form. The
actual outcome of the domain order will be available for you in the notification system.
Whenever you call the
endpoint you will receive the oldest unread message for your API user. It's called the First- In-First-Out
- principle. You will always recieve this oldest message until you delete it with the
endpoint which acts like a "mark as read". Now you are ready for the next message. Just
the notification endpoint again and you will receive the second oldest message.
