dnspython 1.10.0

A DNS toolkit for Python
dnspython is a DNS toolkit for Python that supports almost all record types. It can be used for queries, zone transfers, and dynamic updates. It supports TSIG authenticated messages and EDNS0.

dnspython provides both high and low level access to DNS. The high level classes perform queries for data of a given name, type, and class, and return an answer set. The low level classes allow direct manipulation of DNS zones, messages, names, and records.

To see a few of the ways dnspython can be used, visit the Examples page.

dnspython originated at Nominum where it was developed to facilitate the testing of DNS software. Nominum has generously allowed it to be open sourced under a BSD-style license, and helps support its future development by continuing to employ the author.
