Today I'm happy to announce the plans for the API v0 shut down and the API v1 two-factor authentication rollout.

  • API v0 will be shut down on October 31st, 2014. After that date you will not be able to send API requests to hostname, you will need to use our API hostnames as explained here.
  • API v1 will no longer accept HTTP basic auth requests for accounts with 2FA enabled, unless you properly use the exchange token for authentication as described in our documentation.

Any customers who have performed an API call in the last two months will be sent a final notification email of the shutdown. You will be encouraged to upgrade to the newer v1 API and will need to support 2FA for clients that have it enabled. Just to be clear; at the end of October, any integrations using the older v0 API will no longer work.

Official DNSimple products and clients have been upgraded to support these changes. Here's the minimum required versions:
