ipsync is a script to update multiple cloud DNS providers with your external IP address

Project Description


ipsync is a script to update multiple cloud DNS providers with your external IP address. Useful for when you need to connect to a system on a dynamic IP.

Getting Started


  • Python 2.7+ or Python 3.3+


ipsync can be installed with pip:

$ pip install ipsync

or directly from the source code:

$ git clone
$ cd ipsync
$ python install

Basic Usage

    ipsync [options] <command>

    -h --help               Show this screen.
    -v --version            Show version.
    -c FILE --config=FILE   Configuration FILE to use [default: ~/.config/ipsync.conf]
    --dry-run               Run but don't make any changes.

Available commands:
    update                  Resolve current IP address and update all providers


By default, ipsync will look in ~/.config/ipsync.conf for a yaml formatted file. A sample file is in config/config.sample.yml

For ipsync to work with namecheap, you must first enable it within the control panel and then configure a namecheap section within the ipsync configuration file

    hostname: www
    password: password
    hostname: test
    password: 123456
