AdSpeed API OverviewAdSpeed API (Application Programming Interface) is a value-added service we provide to all clients. Publishers and advertisers can write software to automatically collect information about their zones, ads, campaigns, and reports directly from AdSpeed. Web developers are also encouraged to use the API to build applications on our platform. We reserve the right to change the API details and decline or terminate access prior or without notice.
API Key and API SecretYou need an API key and an API secret to use the API. They can be viewed under the menu Tools / API for Developers. The API key is required on all requests from your application to our system. The API secret is used to sign each request.
Making RequestRequests are made by issuing simple REST queries to our API server. Limit 600 requests per hour (across all methods) and 2400 requests per day per individual method. Certain methods might have additional restrictions and specifications. If you need a higher limit, please contact us for a custom quote.

ResponseResults are sent back in XML format, which could be read by any standard XML parser. Example:
<Response version="1.0.0 (build 123456)"> <Zones active="8" deleted="2" total="10"></Zones> </Response>
YOUR_SECRETwith the actual value provided in your account. Each API call must be signed with the following steps:
- Sort all parameters in alphabetical order. Encode each value if it contains special characters. Join parameters with "&" into a string.
- Prepend your secret string to the beginning of the sorted argument string in Step 1
- Generate a hash (MD5) for the string in Step 2
- Append the hash to the call as an additional parameter
