Alvin Brown provides a tutorial on how to use GoDaddy’s API to retrieve and update DNS records for a given domain with specified Type and Name.
Lately I’ve been experimenting with listing domain names for sale from my GoDaddy account using Sedo, one of the domain industry’s largest marketplaces for buying and selling domains.
While adding my domains to their system for listing is quite trivial, I quickly encountered how cumbersome Sedo’s ownership verification process is for each domain.
Ownership verification is likely not a problem when only listing a handful of domains at one time. Simply add a DNS record for each domain at your domain registrar, and that’s it.
However, if you’re adding more than 5 domains to Sedo, then you’ll want to rethink how you go about Sedo’s ownership verification process.
Most people opt for bulk updating name servers for bulk domains entered into their Sedo account. But what about those of us that don’t care to change name server settings or don’t want to park our domains with Sedo?
Today’s tutorial will help address this very question by showcasing how to use GoDaddy’s API to update DNS records for a given domain with specified Type and Name.
By the end of this tutorial, my hope is that you’ll be able to create your own bulk update tool for Sedo ownership verification if your domains are managed by GoDaddy. [Read more…]
