How to use DNS API

If your dns provider doesn't provide api access, you can use our dns alias mode:

https://github.com/Neilpang/acme.sh/wiki/DNS-alias-mode

1. Use CloudFlare domain API to automatically issue cert

First you need to login to your CloudFlare account to get your API key.

export CF_Key="sdfsdfsdfljlbjkljlkjsdfoiwje"
export CF_Email="xxxx@sss.com"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_cf -d example.com -d www.example.com

The CF_Key and CF_Email will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

2. Use DNSPod.cn domain API to automatically issue cert

First you need to login to your DNSPod account to get your API Key and ID.

export DP_Id="1234"
export DP_Key="sADDsdasdgdsf"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_dp -d example.com -d www.example.com

The DP_Id and DP_Key will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

3. Use CloudXNS.com domain API to automatically issue cert

First you need to login to your CloudXNS account to get your API Key and Secret.

export CX_Secret="sADDsdasdgdsf"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_cx -d example.com -d www.example.com

The CX_Key and CX_Secret will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

4. Use GoDaddy.com domain API to automatically issue cert

First you need to login to your GoDaddy account to get your API Key and Secret.

https://developer.godaddy.com/keys/

Please create a Production key, instead of a Test key.

export GD_Key="sdfsdfsdfljlbjkljlkjsdfoiwje"
export GD_Secret="asdfsdafdsfdsfdsfdsfdsafd"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_gd -d example.com -d www.example.com

The GD_Key and GD_Secret will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

5. Use PowerDNS embedded API to automatically issue cert

First you need to login to your PowerDNS account to enable the API and set your API-Token in the configuration.

https://doc.powerdns.com/md/httpapi/README/

export PDNS_Url="http://ns.example.com:8081"
export PDNS_ServerId="localhost"
export PDNS_Token="0123456789ABCDEF"
export PDNS_Ttl=60

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_pdns -d example.com -d www.example.com

The PDNS_Url, PDNS_ServerId, PDNS_Token and PDNS_Ttl will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

6. Use OVH/kimsufi/soyoustart/runabove API to automatically issue cert

https://github.com/Neilpang/acme.sh/wiki/How-to-use-OVH-domain-api

7. Use nsupdate to automatically issue cert

First, generate a key for updating the zone

b=$(dnssec-keygen -a hmac-sha512 -b 512 -n USER -K /tmp foo)
cat > /etc/named/keys/update.key <<EOF
key "update" {
    algorithm hmac-sha512;
    secret "$(awk '/^Key/{print $2}' /tmp/$b.private)";
};
EOF
rm -f /tmp/$b.{private,key}

Include this key in your named configuration

include "/etc/named/keys/update.key";

Next, configure your zone to allow dynamic updates.

Depending on your named version, use either

zone "example.com" {
    type master;
    allow-update { key "update"; };
};

or

zone "example.com" {
    type master;
    update-policy {
        grant update subdomain example.com.;
    };
}

Finally, make the DNS server and update Key available to acme.sh

export NSUPDATE_SERVER="dns.example.com"
export NSUPDATE_KEY="/path/to/your/nsupdate.key"

and optionally (depending on DNS server)

export NSUPDATE_ZONE="example.com"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_nsupdate -d example.com -d www.example.com

The NSUPDATE_SERVER, NSUPDATE_KEY, and NSUPDATE_ZONE settings will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

8. Use LuaDNS domain API

Get your API token at https://api.luadns.com/settings

export LUA_Key="sdfsdfsdfljlbjkljlkjsdfoiwje"
export LUA_Email="xxxx@sss.com"

To issue a cert:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_lua -d example.com -d www.example.com

The LUA_Key and LUA_Email will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

9. Use DNSMadeEasy domain API

Get your API credentials at https://cp.dnsmadeeasy.com/account/info

export ME_Key="sdfsdfsdfljlbjkljlkjsdfoiwje"
export ME_Secret="qdfqsdfkjdskfj"

To issue a cert:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_me -d example.com -d www.example.com

The ME_Key and ME_Secret will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

10. Use Amazon Route53 domain API

https://github.com/Neilpang/acme.sh/wiki/How-to-use-Amazon-Route53-API

export  AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=XXXXXXXXXX
export  AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

To issue a cert:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_aws -d example.com -d www.example.com

The AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

11. Use Aliyun domain API to automatically issue cert

First you need to login to your Aliyun account to get your API key. https://ak-console.aliyun.com/#/accesskey

export Ali_Key="sdfsdfsdfljlbjkljlkjsdfoiwje"
export Ali_Secret="jlsdflanljkljlfdsaklkjflsa"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_ali -d example.com -d www.example.com

The Ali_Key and Ali_Secret will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

12. Use ISPConfig 3.1 API

This only works for ISPConfig 3.1 (and newer).

Create a Remote User in the ISPConfig Control Panel. The Remote User must have access to at least DNS zone functions and DNS txt functions.

export ISPC_User="xxx"
export ISPC_Password="xxx"
export ISPC_Api="https://ispc.domain.tld:8080/remote/json.php"
export ISPC_Api_Insecure=1

If you have installed ISPConfig on a different port, then alter the 8080 accordingly. Leaver ISPC_Api_Insecure set to 1 if you have not a valid ssl cert for your installation. Change it to 0 if you have a valid ssl cert.

To issue a cert:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_ispconfig -d example.com -d www.example.com

The ISPC_User, ISPC_Password, ISPC_Apiand ISPC_Api_Insecure will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

13. Use Alwaysdata domain API

First you need to login to your Alwaysdata account to get your API Key.

export AD_API_KEY="myalwaysdataapikey"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_ad -d example.com -d www.example.com

The AD_API_KEY will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

14. Use Linode domain API

The tokens created in the classic manager and cloud manager are incompatible with one another. While the classic manager makes an all or nothing API, the newer cloud manager interface promises to produce API keys with a finer permission system. However, either way works just fine.

Classic Manager

Classic Manager: https://manager.linode.com/profile/api

First you need to login to your Linode account to get your API Key.

Then add an API key with label ACME and copy the new key into the following command.

export LINODE_API_KEY="..."

Due to the reload time of any changes in the DNS records, we have to use the dnssleep option to wait at least 15 minutes for the changes to take effect.

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_linode --dnssleep 900 -d example.com -d www.example.com

The LINODE_API_KEY will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

Cloud Manager

Cloud Manager: https://cloud.linode.com/profile/tokens

First you need to login to your Linode account to get your API Key.

  1. Click on "Add a Personal Access Token".
  2. Give the new key a "Label" (we recommend ACME)
  3. Give it Read/Write access to "Domains"
  4. "Submit" and copy the new key into the LINODE_V4_API_KEY command below.
export LINODE_V4_API_KEY="..."

Due to the reload time of any changes in the DNS records, we have to use the dnssleep option to wait at least 15 minutes for the changes to take effect.

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_linode_v4 --dnssleep 900 -d example.com -d www.example.com

The LINODE_V4_API_KEY will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

15. Use FreeDNS

FreeDNS (https://freedns.afraid.org/) does not provide an API to update DNS records (other than IPv4 and IPv6 dynamic DNS addresses). The acme.sh plugin therefore retrieves and updates domain TXT records by logging into the FreeDNS website to read the HTML and posting updates as HTTP. The plugin needs to know your userid and password for the FreeDNS website.

export FREEDNS_User="..."
export FREEDNS_Password="..."

You need only provide this the first time you run the acme.sh client with FreeDNS validation and then again whenever you change your password at the FreeDNS site. The acme.sh FreeDNS plugin does not store your userid or password but rather saves an authentication token returned by FreeDNS in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and reuses that when needed.

Now you can issue a certificate.

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_freedns -d example.com -d www.example.com

Note that you cannot use acme.sh automatic DNS validation for FreeDNS public domains or for a subdomain that you create under a FreeDNS public domain. You must own the top level domain in order to automatically validate with acme.sh at FreeDNS.

16. Use cyon.ch

You only need to set your cyon.ch login credentials. If you also have 2 Factor Authentication (OTP) enabled, you need to set your secret token too and have oathtool installed.

export CY_Username="your_cyon_username"
export CY_Password="your_cyon_password"
export CY_OTP_Secret="your_otp_secret" # Only required if using 2FA

To issue a cert:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_cyon -d example.com -d www.example.com

The CY_Username, CY_Password and CY_OTP_Secret will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

17. Use Domain-Offensive/Resellerinterface/Domainrobot API

ATTENTION: You need to be a registered Reseller to be able to use the ResellerInterface. As a normal user you can not use this method.

You will need your login credentials (Partner ID+Password) to the Resellerinterface, and export them before you run acme.sh:

export DO_PID="KD-1234567"
export DO_PW="cdfkjl3n2"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_do -d example.com -d www.example.com

18. Use Gandi LiveDNS API

You must enable the new Gandi LiveDNS API first and the create your api key, See: http://doc.livedns.gandi.net/

export GANDI_LIVEDNS_KEY="fdmlfsdklmfdkmqsdfk"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_gandi_livedns -d example.com -d www.example.com

19. Use Knot (knsupdate) DNS API to automatically issue cert

First, generate a TSIG key for updating the zone.

keymgr tsig generate -t acme_key hmac-sha512 > /etc/knot/acme.key

Include this key in your knot configuration file.

include: /etc/knot/acme.key

Next, configure your zone to allow dynamic updates.

Dynamic updates for the zone are allowed via proper ACL rule with the update action. For in-depth instructions, please see Knot DNS's documentation.

acl:
  - id: acme_acl
    address: 192.168.1.0/24
    key: acme_key
    action: update

zone:
  - domain: example.com
    file: example.com.zone
    acl: acme_acl

Finally, make the DNS server and TSIG Key available to acme.sh

export KNOT_SERVER="dns.example.com"
export KNOT_KEY=`grep \# /etc/knot/acme.key | cut -d' ' -f2`

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_knot -d example.com -d www.example.com

The KNOT_SERVER and KNOT_KEY settings will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

20. Use DigitalOcean API (native)

You need to obtain a read and write capable API key from your DigitalOcean account. See: https://www.digitalocean.com/help/api/

export DO_API_KEY="75310dc4ca779ac39a19f6355db573b49ce92ae126553ebd61ac3a3ae34834cc"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_dgon -d example.com -d www.example.com

21. Use ClouDNS.net API

You need to set the HTTP API user ID and password credentials. See: https://www.cloudns.net/wiki/article/42/. For security reasons, it's recommended to use a sub user ID that only has access to the necessary zones, as a regular API user has access to your entire account.

# Use this for a sub auth ID
export CLOUDNS_SUB_AUTH_ID=XXXXX
# Use this for a regular auth ID
#export CLOUDNS_AUTH_ID=XXXXX
export CLOUDNS_AUTH_PASSWORD="YYYYYYYYY"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_cloudns -d example.com -d www.example.com

The CLOUDNS_AUTH_ID and CLOUDNS_AUTH_PASSWORD will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

22. Use Infoblox API

First you need to create/obtain API credentials on your Infoblox appliance.

export Infoblox_Creds="username:password"
export Infoblox_Server="ip or fqdn of infoblox appliance"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_infoblox -d example.com -d www.example.com

Note: This script will automatically create and delete the ephemeral txt record. The Infoblox_Creds and Infoblox_Server will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

23. Use VSCALE API

First you need to create/obtain API tokens on your settings panel.

export VSCALE_API_KEY="sdfsdfsdfljlbjkljlkjsdfoiwje"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_vscale -d example.com -d www.example.com

24. Use Dynu API

First you need to create/obtain API credentials from your Dynu account. See: https://www.dynu.com/resources/api/documentation

export Dynu_ClientId="xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx"
export Dynu_Secret="yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_dynu -d example.com -d www.example.com

The Dynu_ClientId and Dynu_Secret will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

25. Use DNSimple API

First you need to login to your DNSimple account and generate a new oauth token.

https://dnsimple.com/a/{your account id}/account/access_tokens

Note that this is an account token and not a user token. The account token is needed to infer the account_id used in requests. A user token will not be able to determine the correct account to use.

export DNSimple_OAUTH_TOKEN="sdfsdfsdfljlbjkljlkjsdfoiwje"

To issue the cert just specify the dns_dnsimple API.

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_dnsimple -d example.com

The DNSimple_OAUTH_TOKEN will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

If you have any issues with this integration please report them to https://github.com/pho3nixf1re/acme.sh/issues.

26. Use NS1.com API

export NS1_Key="fdmlfsdklmfdkmqsdfk"

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_nsone -d example.com -d www.example.com

27. Use DuckDNS.org API

export DuckDNS_Token="aaaaaaaa-bbbb-cccc-dddd-eeeeeeeeeeee"

Please note that since DuckDNS uses StartSSL as their cert provider, thus --insecure may need to be used when issuing certs:

acme.sh --insecure --issue --dns dns_duckdns -d mydomain.duckdns.org

For issues, please report to https://github.com/raidenii/acme.sh/issues.

28. Use Name.com API

Create your API token here: https://www.name.com/account/settings/api

Note: Namecom_Username should be your Name.com username and not the token name. If you accidentally run the script with the token name as the username see ~/.acme.sh/account.conf to fix the issue

export Namecom_Username="testuser"
export Namecom_Token="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

And now you can issue certs with:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_namecom -d example.com -d www.example.com

For issues, please report to https://github.com/raidenii/acme.sh/issues.

29. Use Dyn Managed DNS API to automatically issue cert

RecordGet
ZoneGet
ZoneAddNode
ZoneRemoveNode
ZonePublish

Pass the API user credentials to the environment:

export DYN_Customer="customer"
export DYN_Username="apiuser"

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_yandex -d mydomain.example.org

For issues, please report to https://github.com/non7top/acme.sh/issues.

31. Use Hurricane Electric

Hurricane Electric (https://dns.he.net/) doesn't have an API so just set your login credentials like so:

export HE_Username="yourusername"
export HE_Password="password"

Then you can issue your certificate:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_he -d example.com -d www.example.com

The HE_Username and HE_Password settings will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

Please report any issues to https://github.com/angel333/acme.sh or to me@ondrejsimek.com.

export INWX_Shared_Secret="shared secret"

You may need to re-enable the mobile tan to gain the shared secret.

34. User Servercow API v1

Create a new user from the servercow control center. Don't forget to activate DNS API for this user.

export SERVERCOW_API_Username=username
export SERVERCOW_API_Password=password

Now you cann issue a cert:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_servercow -d example.com -d www.example.com

Both, SERVERCOW_API_Username and SERVERCOW_API_Password will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

35. Use Namesilo.com API

You'll need to generate an API key at https://www.namesilo.com/account_api.php Optionally you may restrict the access to an IP range there.

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_dreamhost -d example.com -d www.example.com

The 'DH_API_KEY' will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

41. Use DirectAdmin API

The DirectAdmin interface has it's own Let's encrypt functionality, but this script can be used to generate certificates for names which are not hosted on DirectAdmin

User must provide login data and URL to the DirectAdmin incl. port. You can create an user which only has access to

  • CMD_API_DNS_CONTROL
  • CMD_API_SHOW_DOMAINS

By using the Login Keys function. See also https://www.directadmin.com/api.php and https://www.directadmin.com/features.php?id=1298

export DA_Api="https://remoteUser:remotePassword@da.domain.tld:8443"
export DA_Api_Insecure=1

Set DA_Api_Insecure to 1 for insecure and 0 for secure -> difference is whether ssl cert is checked for validity (0) or whether it is just accepted (1)

export EUSERV_Username="99999.user123"
export EUSERV_Password="Asbe54gHde"

Ok, let's issue a cert now: (Be aware to use the --insecure flag, cause euserv.eu is still using self-signed certificates!)

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_euserv -d example.com -d *.example.com --insecure

The EUSERV_Username and EUSERV_Password will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

Please report any issues to https://github.com/initit/acme.sh or to github@initit.de

48. Use DNSPod.com domain API to automatically issue cert

First you need to get your API Key and ID by this get-the-user-token.

export DPI_Id="1234"
export DPI_Key="sADDsdasdgdsf"

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_dpi -d example.com -d www.example.com

The DPI_Id and DPI_Key will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

49. Use Google Cloud DNS API to automatically issue cert

First you need to authenticate to gcloud.

gcloud init

The dns_gcloud script uses the active gcloud configuration and credentials. There is no logic inside dns_gcloud to override the project and other settings. If needed, create additional gcloud configurations. You can change the configuration being used without activating it; simply set the CLOUDSDK_ACTIVE_CONFIG_NAME environment variable.

To issue a certificate you can:

export CLOUDSDK_ACTIVE_CONFIG_NAME=default  # see the note above
acme.sh --issue --dns dns_gcloud -d example.com -d '*.example.com'

dns_gcloud also supports DNS alias mode.

50. Use ConoHa API

First you need to login to your ConoHa account to get your API credentials.

export CONOHA_Username="xxxxxx"
export CONOHA_Password="xxxxxx"
export CONOHA_TenantId="xxxxxx"
export CONOHA_IdentityServiceApi="https://identity.xxxx.conoha.io/v2.0"

To issue a cert:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_conoha -d example.com -d www.example.com

The CONOHA_Username, CONOHA_Password, CONOHA_TenantId and CONOHA_IdentityServiceApi will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

51. Use netcup DNS API to automatically issue cert

First you need to login in your CCP account to get your API Key and API Password.

export NC_Apikey="<Apikey>"
export NC_Apipw="<Apipassword>"
export NC_CID="<Customernumber>"

Now, let's issue a cert:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_netcup -d example.com -d www.example.com

The NC_Apikey,NC_Apipw and NC_CID will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

52. Use GratisDNS.dk

GratisDNS.dk (https://gratisdns.dk/) does not provide an API to update DNS records (other than IPv4 and IPv6 dynamic DNS addresses). The acme.sh plugin therefore retrieves and updates domain TXT records by logging into the GratisDNS website to read the HTML and posting updates as HTTP. The plugin needs to know your userid and password for the GratisDNS website.

export GDNSDK_Username="..."
export GDNSDK_Password="..."

The username and password will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

Now you can issue a certificate.

Note: It usually takes a few minutes (usually 3-4 minutes) before the changes propagates to gratisdns.dk nameservers (ns3.gratisdns.dk often are slow), and in rare cases I have seen over 5 minutes before google DNS catches it. Therefor a DNS sleep of at least 300 seconds are recommended-

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_gdnsdk --dnssleep 300 -d example.com -d *.example.com

53. Use Namecheap

You will need your namecheap username, API KEY (https://www.namecheap.com/support/api/intro.aspx) and your external IP address (or an URL to get it), this IP will need to be whitelisted at Namecheap. Due to Namecheap's API limitation all the records of your domain will be read and re applied, make sure to have a backup of your records you could apply if any issue would arise.

export NAMECHEAP_USERNAME="..."
export NAMECHEAP_API_KEY="..."
export NAMECHEAP_SOURCEIP="..."

NAMECHEAP_SOURCEIP can either be an IP address or an URL to provide it (e.g. https://ifconfig.co/ip).

The username and password will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

Now you can issue a certificate.

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_namecheap -d example.com -d *.example.com

54. Use MyDNS.JP API

First, register to MyDNS.JP and get MasterID and Password.

export MYDNSJP_MasterID=MasterID
export MYDNSJP_Password=Password

To issue a certificate:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_mydnsjp -d example.com -d www.example.com

The MYDNSJP_MasterID and MYDNSJP_Password will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

export HOSTINGDE_APIKEY='xxx'
export HOSTINGDE_ENDPOINT='https://secure.hosting.de'

The plugin can also be used for the http.net API. http.net customers have to set endpoint to https://partner.http.net.

Ok, let's issue a cert now:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_hostingde -d example.com -d *.example.com

The hosting.de API key and endpoint will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

56. Use Neodigit.net API

Once you have a token, set it in your systems environment:

export NW_API_TOKEN="YOUR_TOKEN_HERE"
export NW_API_ENDPOINT="https://portal.nexcess.net"

Finally, we'll issue the certificate: (Nexcess DNS publishes at max every 15 minutes, we recommend setting a 900 second --dnssleep)

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_nw -d example.com --dnssleep 900

The NW_API_TOKEN and NW_API_ENDPOINT will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

66. Use MyDevil.net

Make sure that you can execute own binaries:

devil binexec on

Install acme.sh, or simply git clone it into some directory on your MyDevil host account (in which case you should link to it from your ~/bin directory).

If you're not using private IP and depend on default IP provided by host, you may want to edit crontab too, and make sure that acme.sh --cron is run also after reboot (you can find out how to do that on their wiki pages).

To issue a new certificate, run:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_mydevil -d example.com -d *.example.com

After certificate is ready, you can install it with deploy command.

67. Use Core-Networks API to automatically issue cert

70. Use UltraDNS API

UltraDNS is a paid for service that provides DNS, as well as Web and Mail forwarding (as well as reporting, auditing, and advanced tools).

More information can be found here: https://www.security.neustar/lp/ultra20/index.html

The REST API documentation for this service is found here: https://portal.ultradns.com/static/docs/REST-API_User_Guide.pdf

Set your UltraDNS User name, and password; these would be the same you would use here:

https://portal.ultradns.com/ - or if you create an API only user, that username and password would be better utilized.

export ULTRA_USR="abcd"
export ULTRA_PWD="efgh"

To issue a cert run:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_ultra -d example.com -d www.example.com

ULTRA_USR and ULTRA_PWD will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be resued when needed.

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_openprovider -d example.com -d www.example.com

OPENPROVIDER_USER and OPENPROVIDER_PASSWORDHASH will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

73. Use MaraDNS API

Make sure you've configured MaraDNS properly and setup a zone file for your domain. See csv2(5).

Set the path to your zone file, and path to duende's pid file (see, duende(8) or ps -C duende o pid,cmd). The pid file is used to ask duende to reload the configuration automatically after DNS records are added.

export MARA_ZONE_FILE="/etc/maradns/db.domain.com"
export MARA_DUENDE_PID_PATH="/run/maradns/etc_maradns_mararc.pid"

Ensure that the acme.sh process has write access to the zone file and read access to the pid file.

Issuing a certificate:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_maradns -d example.com -d '*.example.com'

MARA_ZONE_FILE and MARA_DUENDE_PID_PATH will be saved in ~/.acme.sh/account.conf and will be reused when needed.

74. Use DDNSS.de API

First create an account at https://ddnss.de. After that create a new host record. In the defenition for the host make sure to set the checkbox for "Wildcard" and for "TXT".

Note your Api Key displayed at ddnss.de and export in DDNSS_Token variable

export DDNSS_Token="e4155767few8erwf59353633tz342ce85werddc99432"

Note: You will only have one token, even if you have multiple Hosts with DDNSS under your account.

After that you can issue a new certificate:

acme.sh --issue --dns dns_ddnss -d example.com

Use custom API

If your API is not supported yet, you can write your own DNS API.

Let's assume you want to name it 'myapi':

  1. Create a bash script named ~/.acme.sh/dns_myapi.sh,
  2. In the script you must have a function named dns_myapi_add() which will be called by acme.sh to add the DNS records.
  3. Then you can use your API to issue cert like this:
acme.sh --issue --dns dns_myapi -d example.com -d www.example.com

For more details, please check our sample script: dns_myapi.sh

See: https://github.com/Neilpang/acme.sh/wiki/DNS-API-Dev-Guide
