Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I need somehow to download the database to my own server, then search through the database to find places names by latitude and longitude and return the results in JSON format. In other words: I need to create a copy of this service: link.

I'm wondering because I read about the limits of this API (1 request per second) and it's not fits my requirements, so I decided to create my own instance. Any help? I've searched a lot, but couldn't find any suggestions.

Fergv1, it would be great if you could explain to us exactly how you tried to find this ("I've searched a lot but couldn't find any suggestions") because the link that mtmail posted is really the first that anyone should come up with. If you tell us what you have searched for that did't yield this result, we can perhaps improve the page with suitable search terms.
