Cloud DNS

The Domain Name System is essentially the phonebook for the Internet. It manages the relationships between IP addresses (the phone numbers), and domains (individuals and corporations). All domains and their components, such as mail servers, utilize DNS to resolve to the appropriate locations.

For Cloud DNS, we have made available a public ReST API to interact with our DNS infrastructure programmatically. This will significantly help you automate and simplify your domain management.
