Dedicated Server Detection

One good indicator of size of a business is if the website owner is serious about hosting their website. Page load speed is an important metric that now plays a part in search engine optimization and hence not sharing a server with 100 other websites is an indicator that the website owner is serious about their business.

To that end we’ve added a “Dedicated Hosting” technology which will tell you if a website is currently the only unique domain running on that IP.

You can filter sites in your list now by sites that are actively running on a dedicated server (or at least a dedicated IP).

Extension for Chrome Power Users

We’ve added a new feature to the BuiltWith Extension for Chrome. Version 2.4 allows you to hide the links and descriptions next to technologies, thus giving you a quicker and easier method to scan the technology lookup –

The Advanced Version of the widget gives you meta data, historical information and quick view of the premium technologies across an entire website for just $144 a year.

Data Points Updated

We try and add as many details as possible to results to make it easier to reach out to potential customers. To that end we’ve just added millions of new pieces of information to 19 million records in the BuiltWith Pro Database.

A sample screenshot below shows some of the long tail gaps filled by this new update –

APIv9 Released

APIv9 is now available at http://api.builtwith.com.

apiv9

This new version includes 2 new properties on each lookup –
IsDB – A true/false if this result came from the database or was a live lookup.
Vertical – The vertical classification of the website based on IAB Tier 1 categories (like Business/Automotive/News etc..)
A new parameter (NOMETA) provides the ability to not return meta data, which will increase the performance of the API if you do not require this data.
See http://api.builtwith.com for more documentation.
