The Go.USA.gov API is Now Available

We’re excited to announce that our API is available! This has been the most requested feature since we launched, and we’re happy it’s finally available.

With the Go.USA.gov API, you can

  • Shorten a URL
  • Preview the destination of a short URL
  • Get the number of clicks on a short URL

The API is available to all registered Go.USA.gov users. If you already have a Go.USA.gov account, you can find your API key by logging in to Go.USA.gov and clicking on your username in the upper-right corner of the screen. Please contact us if you are a government employee, but are unable to register for an account.

To learn more about the API and how to use it, view the documentation.

Please contact us if you have questions or suggestions about the API. We’d love to hear your feedback and learn how you are using the API.
