DNS Service versions#

The Cloud DNS Service version defines the contract and build information for the API.

Contract version#

The contract version denotes the data model and behavior that the API supports. The requested contract version is included in all request URLs. Different contract versions of the API may be available at any given time and are not guaranteed to be compatible with one another.

Example: Request URL (contract version is 1.0)

https://dns.api.rackspacecloud.com/v1.0/1234/domains

Note

This document pertains to contract version 1.0.

API version headers#

Every response from the Cloud DNS Service includes custom headers that identify the specific release version of the API that is in use. This information is used to assist in diagnosing issues and should be included in any support request.

API Version Headers
