Custom API Development

How We Can Help You

Open APIs

These are publicly available APIs that any developer can use. They may be available for free or may require a subscription fee. Open APIs have minimal restrictions and authentication requirements. Consequently, they are suitable for businesses as they allow easy data sharing.

Partner APIs

These are APIs whose access is limited to particular companies that have a partnership with the API owner. These APIs are used by companies that need to restrict access to their resources for security or other reasons. Therefore, using these APIs, a company controls who can access their data and how it can be used.

Private APIs

These APIs are created for internal use within a company. Third-party developers, therefore, have no access to them, and they remain hidden from the public domain. Private APIs are crucial for offering secure and efficient operations since only a few people have access to it.

Composite APIs

These are combinations of various APIs that allow developers to make multiple calls to different servers and receive a combined response. These APIs are suitable for making a chain of calls enabling accessing data from various sources at a go. However, they may offer a reduced loading and response speed due to their complexity and making multiple requests.

What to Check for in an API


APIs are supposed to solve a problem and do it well. A good API should do just that; solve a complex problem using the most straightforward way and avoid any undue complexity. When developing an API, developers should focus on the primary purpose and avoid the temptation of adding new features, as they make APIs more difficult.

Consistency and predictability

When building an API, developers need to consider that the code will be read by other developers integrating it into their systems. Consistency in the code improves its readability, enabling faster customization and integration. A predictable API is easy to use, thereby attracting more users.

Comprehensive documentation

Documentation is one of the essential parts of development as it informs users how to use the API. An API with poor documentation is hard to use, regardless of the quality and simplicity of its code. Comprehensive documentation describing how the API works and integrating and using it promotes its user experience.

API Protocols


Representation State Transfer (REST) is an architectural standard used to develop systems on the web. A RESTful API is an API built while adhering to the REST standards. For example, it uses HTTP requests such as GET, POST, PUT and DELETE to make requests and receive responses. RESTful APIs are popular because they are lightweight, flexible, and easy to integrate.


The simple object access protocol is a messaging protocol used to exchange data in a distributed and decentralized environment. This protocol supports most communication protocols, including HTTP, TCP, and SMTP. It is highly structured and has well-stipulated standards that reduce its flexibility. However, it is style-independent, allowing developers to add functionality easily.


The Remote Procedural Call is the earliest and the least complex API for sending parameters and receiving results. It is as basic as executing a block of code or calling a function in any language. It supports the development of APIs in two languages, XML and JSON. APIs developed using XML are called XML-RPC, while those developed using JSON are called JSON-RPC.
