API v6: automate your domain management!
Most OVH customers regularly use Manager v6. This interface contains all the functions for managing your domain names, websites, email accounts and so on. The engine itself, known as API v6, is hidden behind this interface. Concerning domain names, API v6 lets you run all the regular commands while enabling you to freely automate recurrent tasks.
Principally aimed at those with several domain names or advanced automation needs, API v6 is the number one choice when you have specialised needs. Whether you need to redirect a huge number of domain names or create purchase orders for multiple domains at the same time, the API will improve your efficiency. Well-designed scripts will also result in significant time savings.
One API, several approaches
Manage your OVH products
• Use your API like the current Manager v6: retrieve information, update and configure your products.
• Create your own application.
Combine the OVH APIs to create your own tool for whatever you need to do.
Make your life easier
•Automate basic tasks using scripts, optimise your own functions.
