How To Use the Active24 DNS Plugin

This plugin works against the Active24 DNS provider. It is assumed that you have already setup an account and created the DNS zone(s) you will be working against.


First, login to your account. Tokens are placed at Customer data edit page, in Tokens management. There is need to type in your password again to manage the tokens.

Detailed walk through:

  • Using your login information log in to Customer center.
  • Click on the user name in the upper right corner or you may use direct link to the API management.
  • You may Enter to the API management at the bottom of this page.
  • Use the Create a new token button to setup new API token.
  • The Comment is not mandatory, it simply helps to manage created tokens.
  • The expiration date is also optional.
  • In the Access restrictions can be specified the IP address of the device that can work with the token. If the device with a different IP address used functional token, it will not perform any requests - the requests cannot be authorized.
  • Once you fill everything you need, you can Create a new token. There is a password confirmation required.

Using the Plugin

With your token value, you'll need to set the A24Token SecureString parameter.

$pArgs = @{
    A24Token = (Read-Host "Active24 Token" -AsSecureString)
