# AWS Route 53 DNS Provider

This is a drop-in provider for apnscp (opens new window) to enable DNS support for accounts that use AWS. This provider is built into apnscp.

# Configuring

EditDomain -c dns,provider=aws -c dns,key='[key:ABCDEF123,secret:AbCdEf12345]' domain.com

Where the key is created within AWS. Your API key is available within your AWS IAM Console (opens new window). See also Managing Access Keys for Your AWS Account Root User (opens new window).

# Configurables

# Setting as default

AWS may be configured as the default provider for all sites using the dns.default-provider Scope (opens new window). When adding a site in Nexus or AddDomain (opens new window) the key will be replaced with "DEFAULT". This is substituted automatically on account creation.

cpcmd config_set dns.default-provider aws
cpcmd config_set dns.default-provider-key '[key:ABCDEF123,secret:abCdEf12345]'

Note that it is not safe to set this value as a server-wide default in untrusted multiuser environments. A user with panel access can retrieve your key common_get_service_value dns key or even using Javascript in the panel, apnscp.cmd('common_get_service_value',['dns','key'], {async: false}).

# Components

# Minimal module methods

All module methods can be overwritten. The following are the bare minimum that are overwritten for this DNS provider to work:

  • atomicUpdate() attempts a record modification, which must retain the original record if it fails
  • zoneAxfr() returns all DNS records
  • add_record() add a DNS record
  • remove_record() removes a DNS record
  • get_hosting_nameservers() returns nameservers for the DNS provider
  • add_zone_backend() creates DNS zone
  • remove_zone_backend() removes a DNS zone
