Antigate (Anti-Captcha) API support

For your convinience, we implemented support for Antigate (Anti-Captcha) API. If your software works with it, and supports minimal configuration, you should be able to decode captchas using Death By Captcha in no time.

Antigate API FAQ:

What are your Antigate API URLs?

http://api.dbcapi.me/in.php and http://api.dbcapi.me/res.php.

How do I use your Antigate API server?

Follow these steps:

  1. In your software settings, use:
    Host or server: api.dbcapi.me
    Port (if asked): 80
  2. API key: Insert your Death By Captcha username and password, separated with `:` symbol (for example, myusername:mypassword).

I tried to retrieve my account balance through antigate API, and the number returned is strangely high. Is something wrong?

Balance through antigate API is returned in US cents.

My software doesn’t allow me to change host settings. What should I do?
WARNING: This might not work with all software.

Explanation for Technically Advanced Users:

  1. Get the latest IP for api.dbcapi.me (can be obtained from a ping).
  2. Edit your hosts file: run Notepad as an Administrator, click File -> Open, open C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and add the following line:
    [IP-for-api.dbcapi.me] antigate.com www.antigate.com anti-captcha.com www.anti-captcha.com
  3. Ping for antigate.com must be identical to ping to api.dbcapi.me

Explanation for Non-Technical Users:

  1. Go to IPChecking.com.
  2. Enter api.dbcapi.me in "IP Address or Host Name", click on "Lookup". Copy and save the IP shown after "General information and location of".
  3. Download & install HostMan.
  4. Run HostMan.
  5. Click on Tools -> HostMan Editor.

    www.anti-captcha.com
  8. In the text field next to "IP" insert the IP that was copied in step 1.
