SSL Error:

I get the following error 

SSLError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /developer_api/v1/companies/search (Caused by SSLError(SSLError("bad handshake: Error([('SSL routines', 'ssl3_get_server_certificate', 'certificate verify failed')],)",),))

The code seemed to be working fine and suddenly it started throwing this error.  

I haven't exceeded the query rate limit. Does anyone have insight to what this might be about?


Thank You,



  • Their SSL cert has expired. Noticed this as I was beginning to map out an api integration with our various internal systems, so has me wondering about this platform as a viable production-ready system for housing our mission critical business data. 

  • Working on it! Will update when it is fixed. Sorry about this!

  • This fix will be live in an hour. Thanks!
