Nettica DNS API
Client Update API
Nettica provides secure public APIs for managing many of the services we offer. These APIs are standards-based to accommodate many different platforms and environments, allowing seamless integration of our products with your infrastructure.
As part of our growing commitment to providing outstanding features to our customers, we have developed a Web Service API for managing domains programmatically. In order to use or test these APIs you must be a current Nettica Bulk DNS customer.
The API allows you to programmatically:
The API is a standard .Net Framework XML Web Service running over HTTPS and SOAP. The schema for the service may be found here:
The WSDL can be located here:
If you are a PHP developer, use the WSDL URL to instantiate the service. When using the API you must base64 encode your password before passing it to the API.
The API is firm and will not change except for bug fixes. Please contact Support if you plan to try out this service. We have a reference implementation available to use as a guide for implementing your own applications, as well as an API reference. The source code is available here. Contact support for complete details.
There are a number of customer contributions that may assist you in developing against the service.
We make updating the IP address of your host as simple as doing a simple GET request against a URL. For example:
This makes it extremely easy to update your IP address using scripts or simple applications. The format of the API is as follows:
* If FQDN is specified, A, D, and O are not required.
If successful, the HTTP result code is 200. Otherwise, there was an error updating the record.
In addition to the simple HTTP request, Nettica provides a more advanced Web Services API for retrieving the list of hosts that are available for a given user. To retrieve this list you submit a well-formed SOAP request to our service.
The schema for the service is located at:
The follow example demonstrates how to call the API from C# using the Microsoft .Net Framework.
com.nettica.www.DnsManager dns = new com.nettica.www.DnsManager();
com.nettica.www.ListResult result = dns.List( UserName, Password ); // Password must be bin.base64 encoded
for (int i=0; i < result.NumEntries; i++)
com.nettica.www.DnsEntry entry = result.Entries[i];
Console.WriteLine( entry.HostName + " " + entry.DomainName + " = " + entry.Data );
Before starting development, please contact Support for additional information and guidelines on implementing commercial products using our APIs. There are test accounts and domains available to verifying your client before release.
* Use of all our APIs are monitored.
