Complete domain management API coming soon — let the application development begin!
Our full domain management & DNS hosting API is currently under development.
Subscribe to our API updates below to participate in our early release.
We provide a DDNS interface so you can use your domain with routers and other dynamic hosts. This type of protocol is pretty ancient and comes with a few restrictions in general and on our end. We recommend that you put the domain in a separate account from the rest of your domains as the authentication currently only works via BasicAuth. Here is how it works:
curl -u "[username]:[password]" \ "https://iwantmyname.com/basicauth/ddns?hostname=[hostname]&myip=[IP]"
username/password parameters are your normal
iwantmyname login credentials, the
hostname is is
the full host you want to update like
home.mydomain.io and the
parameter is the optional IP address you want to update the DNS
record with. If this parameter is not set we update it to the IP
the request is coming from.
Some more info about the service is on our blog.
