We’ve developed a REST API which enables checking on the status of DNS records, and record groups that are monitored through DNS Check.

An example use case of the API is to augment monitoring systems that have limited DNS record checking capabilities. For example, many services support checking A and AAAA records, but lack support for checking MX and SPF records.

We plan to make the DNS Check API available to both free and paid accounts.

The API is currently in beta. Please contact us if you’re interested in being a beta tester.

We plan to end the beta period, and make the API available to all of our customers on November 16th.
