    I have implemented sftdyn ( in my server and I'd like to update ISPConfig's DNS whenever sftdyn service changes a computer IP remotely. How should I hook this feature to ISPConfig ?

    SFTDYN is a DynDNS like, open source service.

    ISPConfig remote API is probably the way to go. See examples in remote_client folder of ISPConfig tar.gz file.

    Another solution that I would propose if you're up for the task is to implement DNAME records in ISPConfig, so the functionality is available for all, and for other use cases. If unfamiliar, they are a pseudo record type similar to a CNAME, where a hostname (like your client website name) points to another name (such as your sftdyn hostname) and the DNS server infrastructure performs periodic DNS lookups for the latter name and updates DNS A records for the former name when the address changes.

    DNAME is nice because it can work for the domain name itself, where CNAMEs usually can't be used, and has other uses (iirc, one more of cloudflare domain authentication was very simple with DNAME records).

    Nice, did not hear of DNAME records before :) I'll add a feature request for adding them.
