  • Kubernetes support on RimuHosting VMs

    “Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers.

  • Per minute billing

  • Wildcard DNS queries added to our DNS API

    We are updating our DNS API (Zonomi and RimuHosting) to support a name/host argument of **.example.com (where example.com is your DNS zone).  This will find any DNS records ending with example.com. This could be used, for example, in providing your own UI from end to our name servers.  Or for setting up slave DNS servers. […]

  • Did you know we have a DNS API?

    Seems some cool features get lost, and only staff know about them rather than the customers. I thought I’d point out to people we have an API for our DNS. This can be used by scripts for adding domains to your own VPS using PHP curl, or similar other things. Another excellent use is fail […]
