Namesilo Ruby client v0.0.3 - supporting all REST API methods and adding helper methods

in #utopian-io6 years ago

Github repository:

What is the project about?

Namesilo is one of the top domain name registrar, offering competitive pricing, easy to use interface, free privacy protection and email forwarding.

We created NameSilo with the goal of offering a new type of registrar that appeals to people looking for a simpler, cheaper and better alternative to the companies already in the industry. As people with domain portfolios of our own, and having used many registrars ourselves, we believed that there was enough room for improvement to throw our hat into the ring.

This project is aiming to provide a Ruby client for Namesilo REST APIs. This gem can be used in Ruby/Rails application to retrieve information from Namesilo and send requests to Namesilo server, e.g. listing all domains, email forwards, url forwards, register a new domain, renew a domain etc.

Namesilo makes an application programming interface (API) available to all users as a convenience to customers who have additional automation requirements. The API allows access to accounts via our users' own software as opposed to needing to log in through our web interface.
