MACVendors.com and it's API were developed in 2011 by our team over at Nivel Technologies. We are a small team that loves to create products and services that are a pleasure to use. MACVendors.com was created to scratch our own itch. We launched a product that used a third party MAC address lookup API and the service just wasn't cutting it for us. Instead, we set out to make it right; not only for ourselves, but for all other developers out there. We took a look at how the various API's in the market dropped the ball, and used it to perfect our product.
The backend to our API has been re-written several times over the years in order to keep up with the incredible growth we have experienced. As of early 2018, we are now receiving well over 3.5 billion requests per year!
There are real people behind MAC Vendors, so if you have a question or suggestion (no matter how small) please get in touch with us: [email protected]
