Adding subdomains for the domain on the same droplet through the api v2 (ruby)

March 2, 2015 1.7k views

Looking through the documentation don't see how this might be done.
Can you please point me in the right direction.

  • Thank you for your very quick reply.

    I've been through those docs. I'm at a pretty basic level & I don't see any reference to sub-domains.

  • A subdomain is a record on a domain.

As @Woet mentioned, a sub-domain is simply another record type. Generally you'd want to use an A record to create a subdomain. The example below, creates the sub-domain www to the domain example.com by adding an A record pointing to an IP address:

require 'droplet_kit'
token='YOUR_DIGITALOCEAN_API_TOKEN'
client = DropletKit::Client.new(access_token: token)

record = DropletKit::DomainRecord.new(type: 'A', name: 'www', data: '162.10.66.0')
client.domain_records.create(record, for_domain: 'example.com')
