Description

This function performs a DNS lookup on a domain.

Warning:

cPanel API 1 is deprecated. We strongly recommend that you do not use cPanel API 1. However, no equivalent function exists in our newer APIs.

Examples


 LiveAPI PHP Class
$cpanel = new CPANEL(); // Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
$lookup_dnszone = $cpanel->api1('Net','dnslookup', array('example.com') ); // Call the function.

Note:

For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.

 LiveAPI Perl Module
my $cpliveapi = Cpanel::LiveAPI->new(); # Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
my $lookup_dnszone = $cpliveapi->api1('Net','dnslookup', ['example.com'] ); # Call the function.

Note:

For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.

 cPanel Tag System (deprecated)

Warning:

In cPanel & WHM version 11.30 and later, cPanel tags are deprecated. We provide this example to help developers move from the old cPanel tag system to our LiveAPI system. We strongly recommend that you only use the LiveAPI system to call the cPanel APIs.
