Is there some tool for automated migration of DNS records from old host to WebFaction?

It is very sensitive task to configure all by hand to migrate it without any mistake, hope that it will work and if not working find typo and wait another hours.

By simply adding your domain to our control panel, we'll automatically generate A and MX records to point your domain at our services.

If you need something more advanced than that, like for custom DNS records (CNAME's, SRV's ,etc) then you could write a script to query your existing DNS records (with something like DNSPython, for example) and then use the results to create corresponding records on our side via our control panel API.

Either way, once you've created the records, all that's left is to set your NS to ours, and your new records will go live as soon as the changes propagate.

Hope that helps!

I neet to migrate all kind of records without modifications. Some my customers have many servers for different services what dont want to move to WebFaction (not possible or do it later). For example just setup of Google Apps requires around 30 records.
