Antigate (Anti-Captcha) API support

For your convenience, 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?

In your software's settings, use:

  • Host or server: api.dbcapi.me
  • Port (if asked): 80

For the API key, use your Death By Captcha username and password, separated by a colon (:). 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 by pinging).
  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 (check here if link isn't working).
  4. Run HostMan.
  5. Click on Tools -> HostMan Editor.
  6. Click on Edit -> Add Entry.
  7. In the textbox field beneath "Host names" insert the following host names, one per line:
    • antigate.com
    • www.antigate.com
    • anti-captcha.com
    • www.anti-captcha.com
  8. In the text field next to "IP" insert the IP that was copied in step 1.
  9. Click the "Add" button, then the "Save" button.

What captcha types are supported?

Only text captchas are supported by this API. For solving other captcha types, use our API (recommended).

Why am I receiving an ERROR_URL_METHOD_FORBIDDEN error message from the API?

The API will return an ERROR_URL_METHOD_FORBIDDEN error message if an unsupported captcha is uploaded or if a GET request is issued to http://api.dbcapi.me/in.php.

What other APIs are supported?

We offer support for our own Death By Captcha API (recommended), DeCaptcher API and 2captcha API.
