How to Validate a URL in C#

If you’re looking for a simple way to consistently validate URLs that you interact with, you’ve come to the right place. We have an API solution that will check the syntax, domain, and endpoint of a URL to ensure its safe. With phishing scams that use invalid domain names on the rise, performing these scans on a regular basis can provide a secure experience for both your organization and customer-base.

In order to begin the validation process, we will first need to install the .NET Framework SDK (.NET Core available as well):

Install-Package Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.Validate -Version 3.0.6

With the package installed, our next step is to call the function using the following code:

using System;
using System.Diagnostics;
using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.Validate.Api;
using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.Validate.Client;
using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.Validate.Model;

As previously mentioned, you will receive a response indicating the validity of the URL syntax and domain, and whether the endpoint passed virus checks. Additionally, the function will produce a fully formed URL. If you have any questions on this or any of our other APIs, you can contact our experienced Sales team, and they will be happy to assist.

There’s an API for that. Cloudmersive is a leader in Highly Scalable Cloud APIs.
