Webhooks and API events
Table of Contents
DNSimple uses webhooks to deliver notifications via HTTP regarding changes or events in your account.
For more technical information, visit the Webhook and Events section in our API documentation.
Managing Webhook recipients
To check your webhook recipients, log in to your account, and navigate to your account page.
Click on the link in the left menu.
This shows all the URLs where DNSimple publishes the events that happen in your account.
Adding a recipient
Click on the link to add a new recipient.
You’ll be asked for a URL. After you’ve entered the URL, click on to add the recipient.
You’ll then be redirected to the Automation section. The new webhook recipient will appear on the list of all webhooks.
Removing a recipient
You can remove a recipient by using the button.
Sometimes a webhook delivery fails. This may be due to a temporary error or more permanent problem. If an endpoint cannot be reached, the delivery is retried. If it keeps failing, the recipient will be marked as Suppressed, and no more events will be sent.
When there are suppressed recipients, an alert message appears, and a red exclamation point next to a webhook indicates there’s an issue and that the webhook is suppressed.
Click on the button to clear the suppresion and allow the recipient to rececive events again.
