Comment on Kite Connect APIs for programmatic access

Hi Nithin,
At first, kudos on the success of Zerodha and your initiatives on inclusion.
I recently migrated to kite from NSENow, hoping that i would be able to use the Kite API. My first reaction was positive, the kite.zerodha offering had a clean, uncluttered presentation. However, I had an issue with the kite platform today, which causes me to rethink any effort on kite API.
Today two option orders, placed around 15:26 were stuck in kite.zerodha.com, with status = “OPEN PENDING”. Around 17:12, these were updated to status=”LAPSED”. The orders never reached NSE!! Zerodha support said that the server went down!!
Three questions:
1. Is the API exposed by Kite = API used by kite.zerodha.com?
2.Does the API also use the same server as kite.zerodha.com?
3. Any suggestions on how to get around such “lapses”?
Thanks,
