Working with the CashParking API

The CashParking® API lets you download CashParking stats, add domain names to your CashParking account, and maintain keywords for your CashParking domain names — using your own software and server and our Web methods!

To Access the CashParking API

You can find WSDL (Web Service Description Language) for the CashParking API at https://mcc.godaddy.com/CashParkingAPI/cpapi.asmx?WSDL.

There are multiple Web methods available with the API interface. Each method requires specific parameters including:

  • User Name — Your shopper (i.e., customer account) ID.
  • Password — The password to your shopper account.
  • CashParking API Key — The API Key is a unique identifier for each CashParking account. Use https://mcc.godaddy.com/CashParkingAPISettings.aspx, and log in to your account to view your API Key.

TIP: All parameter fields must be in string format.

Using the AddDomainsToCashParking Method

Use this method to add domain names to a CashParking account.

When a domain name is registered with us, we automatically update its nameservers to the default CashParking nameservers.

When a domain name is not registered with us, we add it to the CashParking account but it remains in pending status until you update its nameservers (through your account at the domain name's registrar) to the following values:


NOTE: We add domain names as Auto-Optimized, and we automatically assign a template and keywords to them. See Working with Automated Keywords and Templates in CashParking for information on re-categorization of auto-optimized domain names.

This method returns an XML string of the method results. The result attribute of the Domain node indicates the success or failure of the addition. A "0" indicates that the operation succeeded and we added the domain name to the CashParking account.

Parameter Description
un Shopper ID
pw Password
key CashParking API key
sDomains Comma-delimited list of domain names to be added
