| ||Ask HN: Is there an API for editing DNS records – for *any* domain registrar?|

|I know some domain registrars like dnsimple provide an API for their own registrar service, but I am looking for a single API that works with all the popular registrars out there. The reason is that my users are required to edit their DNS records as part of the onboarding process of my email provider service. This is annoying and difficult for users - they need to find and login to their domain registrar, and copy paste DNS records across carefully. I would prefer the workflow to look like this:|
1. User provides credentials for their registrar, such as Gandi, Namecheap, or GoDaddy
2. An API takes those credentials and makes the required changes to their DNS records, and notifies me when those changes have propagated
Anyone have a similar problem, or know of a service that does this?
