DNS Made Easy. PHP. And Laravel

Over the years we’ve been generating our own internal portal (https://www.mymidgard.co.uk) Its seen multiple upgrades, and changes.

One of the things we use it for, is a dashboard to pull in all our API’s into one place, allowing us to change 3rd party suppliers without major changes to our internal workflow.

DNS MADE EASY

One of our work flows is the creation, edits, and deletion of DNS records for our clients. We have domains hosted over different providers and registrars. (Domain Box, and DNS Made Easy Being the main two at the moment).

Both use completely different ways of interacting with their own API’s. Trying to find Packages, that allowed us to create nice restful hooks, we found one that was really good, but documentation was lacking (Had to deep dive into the code to see how to get stuff). We finally decided to just roll a stripped down version, using Laravels HTTP client and the actual API docs from DNS Made easy.

We cant show you all the code, and interfaces we use, and although we are tempted to publish it as a separate package, we would have to decouple quite a bit of our own internal logic.

So instead, we are going to post below a few snippits of the code, and host it on GitHub.
If there is a demand for this, we will release it as a full blown package.
