API system changes affecting all site owners
EFFECTIVE AS OF 12PM UK TIME, AUGUST 1ST.
This post will be outlining a very important change to the API system and how it functions. For a long time we have been working on the FaucetBox model of providing free API requests within certain time limits. For some larger faucets these limits are not enough, and we'd provide higher limits when requested.
Unfortunately, many attempts are made to use the API in an abusive way. This includes some of the following things:
- Multiple sites for a single site, to increase the limits
- Many many small payouts to boost the EXP of an account
These changes are being made to deter the use of Auto faucets, or to push faucet owners to create better and more optimised scripts which send larger payouts and use less API requests.
Below is a full list of changes which will be applied to the API system.
Decreased default request limits with upgrade plans
The first change is the lowering of the default request limits to the following values:
- Per minute: from 120 to 30
- Per 10 mins: from 1000 to 250
- Per hour: from 4000 to 1000
This is replaced with the packages available below:
You can select the package you require from the Faucet Manager, billed on a daily basis with the ability to upgrade and downgrade at any time.
API request credits
From the moment the new system activates every API request made will deduct 1 credit from your API credit balance. Every account is given 10,000 credits per day for free. 1 credit is equal to 1 API request. Once you have run out of credits you will no longer be able to make API requests and will be given an error. You must then either wait for your free credits to be refilled or purchase some more credits.
Credits can be purchased from the Faucet Manager at any time in the form of packages.
You can purchase more than 1 package at the same time by raising the quantity.
Please understand, this is irreversible and we wont be answering to any comments regarding this.
Just keep one thing in mind. FaucetHUB isn't doing this to profit, but to stop the abuse and balance server overload.
