hrdns is actually a shortcut name from h(etzner)r(obot)dns.
I chosen shorter version because of possible license/trademark issues. Hetzner.de provides great hosting services in western europe. As their client, I wanted to automate some parts of our(me & my current company) infrastracture. This tool covers dns-management in Hetzner's Robot panel.
You need access to pstats module from python's standard library. On ubuntu it can be installed by following command:
sudo apt-get installl python-profiler
Then you can install hrdns by typing:

Storing username and password in safe way
There 3 ways to pass username/password to script:
1. Passing it through params which is unsafe.
2. Environment variables HRDNS_USER, HRDNS_PASSWORD like this:
export HRDNS_USER=< user >
export HRDNS_PASSWORD=< password >
3. By creating file ~/.hrdnsrc with source like this:
user=< user >
password=< password >
