Dub.co’s API is currently in beta. If you have any questions or feedback, please reach out to us at support@dub.co.

Base URL

Dub.co’s API is built on REST principles and is served over HTTPS. To ensure data privacy, unencrypted HTTP is not supported.

The Base URL for all API endpoints is:

https://api.dub.co

Authentication

Authentication to Dub.co’s API is performed via the Authorization header with a Bearer token. To authenticate, you need to include the Authorization header with the word Bearer followed by your token in your API requests like so:

Authorization: Bearer <Your-Token>

You can get your token under your Dub.co Account Settings.

Response Codes

The API returns standard HTTP response codes to indicate the success or failure of an API request. Here are a few examples:

CodeDescription
200The request was successful.
400The request was invalid or cannot be served.
401The request requires user authentication.
403The server understood the request, but refuses to authorize it.
404The requested resource could not be found.
429Too many requests.
500The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request.

Caveats

  • Dub’s API is currently in public beta and is subject to change. However, we will do our best to keep breaking changes to a minimum.
  • The API does not support generic shortlinks (dub.sh, chatg.pt) at this time – you can only use it with a Dub.co project with a custom domain for now.
