Cloudflare has announced that is deprecating HOST API integration which will affect Cloudflare’s legacy host and reseller partners.
Cloudflare Host API deprecation
Cloudflare Legacy Host API will be deprecated by November 1, 2022. Cloudflare says that it is deprecating the API due to the cost of supporting and maintaining the program.
The timeline for deprecating the API is as follows.
- By June 15, 2022 API for creating a Cloudflare account for a new user, setting up a CNAME record for a user’s zone, and adding a zone will be disabled.
- By November 1, 2022, all host API and Reseller API will be disabled and you will not be able to access them. You will also not be able to manage accounts or zones via HOST API.
Customers using HOST API can migrate to Cloudflare directly by creating their accounts and then recreate zones for self-management.
Web Hosting Companies and Resellers
If you are a web hosting company or reseller who designed an application that integrates with Cloudflare HOST API, you need to update your customers about the changes. Customers need not to worry as Cloudflare has made the migration process seamless.
Cloudflare has also set up an email for inquiries about host API deprecation. Email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
