Response Codes

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

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.

Rate limits

CutMe Short’s API enforces a rate limit of 60 requests per minute per user.

This limitation is in place to promote fair usage and prevent any single user from disproportionately impacting the performance and availability of the API for others.

If you exceed the rate limit, you will receive a 429 Too Many Requests response code. This indicates that your request cannot be processed at the moment due to exceeding the allowed number of requests within the specified timeframe.

Important Notes

CutMe Short’s API is currently in public beta and may be subject to changes. However, we are committed to minimizing any breaking changes to the API as much as possible. Your feedback is valuable to us as we continue to improve our services. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns.
