The data feed provides a downloadable database of the registered IP Netblocks (IP ranges) with detailed information regarding each range. Some network blocks provided by the API may be missing in the data feed. That happens when a block equals an Autonomous System's route but doesn't have a corresponding WHOIS. Those records have the "parent" field set in the API response.
The resulting database is a joint dataset, post-processed to get unified and consistent format and data. The output format is JSON or CSV where every row is a separate JSON object or CSV row. It allows parallel processing in your systems.
About 20% of records have partly redacted contact information, due to GDPR.
File storage time: full and daily files are available for 3 months since their creation date. Lite files are available for a week.
A fresh daily incremental database is delivered every day at 02.00 PST.
Here are presented approximate files sizes and records numbers.
