The SiteHost API enables programmatic access to the systems, tools and resources in your SiteHost account. You can retrieve information and execute actions on your resources using simple HTTP requests.
To start working with the SiteHost API you will need an API Key, which you can create via the API module in SiteHost Control Panel, do note that your account will need to have two-factor authentication enabled before you can do so.
Navigate to the API module at the bottom left of the SiteHost Control Panel.
Enter a label for your key.
This helps you identify which key it is, for example: the purpose of the key or whose it is.
Select which API modules you wish the key to have access to.
Modules are distinct areas of the API you can interact with. The modules correspond to the available endpoints as seen in our API Documentation.
For organisation and security reasons, we recommend you to apply the principle of least privilege when you are creating an API key. This means you should limit the modules on your key to just the ones it needs to perform its function.
To lock your API key down so it can only be used from trusted IP addresses, add them to the Allowed IP Addresses section. Otherwise the API key can be used from anywhere.
