All calls to the DNS Check API should include an API key. This 32-character string authenticates the application that's connecting. We recommend using a different API key for each connecting application so that you can easily revoke access to any of them without impacting the others.
Treat this key as you would a password. Anyone who has this key can use it to view the status of your DNS Checks.
Here's how to generate a DNS Check API key:
- Login to your DNS Check account.
- Click the User icon in the top-right corner, then click API Settings:
- Click the Add API key button:
- Give the API key a name, then click Save:
You should now see your new API key.
