As we are active members of Nominet, the .uk registry, we often have to modify, renew etc., domains on our account.
While it might be possible for each and every member of our staff to become intimate with the specific commands necessary to interface with the registry’s systems it would be a bit unrealistic. Our staff have enough on their plates!
So just over a year ago I asked one of our technical staff to do up a simple, easy to use, web interface for non-technical staff to use.
Over a year later it’s been re-written several times and now supports most of the Nominet automaton commands.
So you don’t need to spend 3/4 of an hour reading up on which template you need to use to perform a specific action.
Now I would never be so silly as to say that it’s attractive to look at, but it’s not meant to be!
So, in the interests of helping the wider Nominet community we’ve decided to make the interface software available to other Nominet members.
NB: If you are not a Nominet registrar this software will not be of any use to you. I repeat. You need to be a Nominet registrar (tag holder) to use this. You’ll also need to read the include README file carefully.
Although we’re generous people we would ask that you maintain the copyright notice that is included.
Full details are in the aforementioned README along with our nice big disclaimer – simple version being – if your server explodes or anything else happens please don’t complain to us.
So, without further ado here is the link to the software:
Nominet Automaton Web Interface
You will need a recent version of PHP 4 or 5 to make use of it. Further details in the “famous” README.
Any issues please let us know.
