    This might sound strange, but....

    Does anybody know of a script that will update the DNS automatically? So that bewtween 4 different DNS's that would automatically rotate each day.

    Day 1 - aa.newhost.com
    Day 2 - ab.nwehost.com
    Day 3 - ac.wenhost.com
    Day 4 - ad.enwhost.com

    and then repeat...

    Strange huh? But I have an idea. I just need the software.

    Thanks

    JR

    Best bet would be to work with a registrar that has an API that allows you to make these sorts of changes.

    ...that is if you are talking about the DNS server(s) associated to a particular domain name.

    Yes. I do it manually now. But it is time consuming. I am currently working with Godaddy on this particular domain. I would like the domain to rotate through different parking services. As it stands now, I must log in and change the name, and each day do the same thing. It would be better if I could have a program do it automatically at preset times.

    Any thoughts?

    You'd probably have to create a custom application that will auto-login to your account at the domain registrar and update the nameservers. This would require knowing the HTML source code of the pages from which you need to make the updates. Since the HTML will differ among registrars and is subject to change (and there are a ton of registrars), it's not practical to develop such software for the public, which is why you'll have trouble finding a pre-made solution.

    You wouldn't necessarily need an API. Automatic logins, button clicks, and form submissions can be done without the assistance of an API.

    fyi it can take upto 48hrs for a domain to propogate properly onto a new nameserver - changing it every 24hrs could cause you some serious issue... plus google will identify the domain as frequently moving... just look at whois.sc and check your domain and it will show you how many times its changed nameservers...

    be interested to see how you plan works out... might actually be easier to simply change the dns record and point your www record to a different IP address each time instead???

    Thanks guys!

    The IP address idea is much more practical. Thanks!

    why don't you just add 50 A records for the domain, or you want to have exclusitivity?

    Yes and yes lol, i must say this is the most "unusual" DNS related question i have ever heard.

    Just curious, why the heck do you want to switch parking companies so frequently?
