OpenSRS API Quick Start Guide

Follow These Three Easy Steps

Getting started should be simple and straightforward. With this in mind, we've divided our Quick Start Guide into three easy steps and included code snippets for several of the major languages. We hope this will assist you in connecting to the OpenSRS system and allow you to begin selling domain and SSL services.

Step 1.

Go to Reseller Control Panel, and click on Account Settings. Under the gear icon, click on the API settings tab, and copy your API key.

Step 2.

(Required for the Live environment but not the test environment)
On the Account Settings page, scroll down to IP Access Rules and select the edit button. Here, you can add the IP address from which you will send API calls.

Step 3.

Plugin your API key and reseller username into one of the following code snippets:

#!/usr/bin/python

import hashlib

TEST_MODE = 1

connection_options = {
        'live' : {
         # IP whitelisting required
             'reseller_username': '<YOUR RESELLER USERNAME>',
             'api_key':'<YOUR API KEY>',
             'api_host_port': 'https://rr-n1-tor.opensrs.net:55443',
        },
