Guides - Domains

The Linode CLI is a wrapper around the Linode API that allows you to manage your Linode account from the command line. Virtually any task that can be done through the Linode Manager can be done through the CLI, making it an excellent tool for scripting.

  1. List the Domains on your account:

    linode-cli domains list
    
  2. View all domain records in a specific Domain:

    linode-cli domains records-list $domain_id
    
  3. Delete a Domain:

    linode-cli domains delete $domain_id
    
  4. Create a Domain:

    linode-cli domains create --type master --domain www.example.com --soa_email [email protected]
    
  5. Create a new A record in a Domain:

    linode-cli domains records-create $domain_id --type A --name subdomain --target 192.0.2.0
