YDNS receives some updates

Today I spent another update to yDNS: The support for multiple records per host. Before the update happened, only one record per host was allowed due to implementation restrictions. Now you can add an arbitrary number of records to each of your hosts. I also added support for three additional record types: CNAME, MX and TXT. The update resource for API calls has been updated as well: It now supports two new parameters:

  • content (alias for ip, can hold any content value for the record, not just IP adddresses)
  • record_id (if specified, the specific host is updated directly instead of guessing which record has to be updated)

I have plans to add support for custom domains. But that’s not final yet. Everyone is invited to test the new features in yDNS and report issues/suggestions by creating an issue on the project’s Github site.
