What is Sandbox?
Before you start using our API, we advise you to try it in our Sandbox environment. The sandbox environment was created explicitly for testing purposes. All purchases processed through the sandbox API are simulated.
To start testing API in Sandbox, you will need to sign up for an account here (this account will not be associated with the one you have at http://www.namecheap.com).
To enable access to Sandbox API, go to the Profile section, select Tools and choose the Namecheap API Access option for Business & Dev Tools. You will get API username and API key almost immediately.
After you run some tests and find that you are satisfied with the work of our API, please contact us for enabling API in production environment for your Namecheap account.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact our Support Team.
