I want to change the model of my EC2 hosted service to have a separate sub domain for each tenant (ie.
<accountname>.example.com). My primary DNS is now with dnsmadeeasy.com, but their dynamic DNS offering seem pretty weak:
- it requires the API to use my full dnsmadeeasy.com account credentials, I rather have the API use a limited privilege credential that can only add/remove/modify subdomain records
- from what I gather it only allows to modify existing records, does not allow me to dynamically add/remove records for new tenant subdomains
My question what are my alternatives? Is there something in the dnsmadeeasy API offering I misunderstood and I should just use them? Is there some other similar DNS service that has a DDNS offering that satisfies my requirements? Or should I just bite the bullet and host my own DNS (my fear is not configuration/learning/know how, my fear is reliability).
If you recommend the latter, can you detail the necessary steps or a link to a good tutorial how to?
