API keys

The API keys must be generated by calling the dyndns/api_key endpoint.

Example:

$ curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" --data '{"username":"notarealuser","password":"notarealpassword","hostname":"example.com"}' https://public-api.sonic.net/dyndns/api_key
{"userid":"12345","apikey":"4d6fbf2f9ab0fa11697470918d37625851fc0c51","result":200,"message":"OK"}

See https://public-api.sonic.net/dyndns/#requesting_an_api_key for additional details.

This userid and apikey combo allow modifications to any DNS entries connected to the managed domain (hostname).

Hostname should be the toplevel domain managed e.g example.com not www.example.com.
