How to use the PointDNS Plugin

This plugin works against the PointDNS DNS provider. It presumes that you have already set up an account and created the DNS zone(s) that you are targeting.


Login to your account. Go to Account and copy your API key. Click the key icon if you need to generate a new key.

Using the Plugin

The PDUser parameter should be set to the email address associatedw ith your account. The API key is used with the PDKey SecureString parameter.


The PDKeyInsecure parameter is deprecated and will be removed in the next major module version. If you are using it, please migrate to the Secure parameter set.
