There are no templates, but you can include records with the create call.


curl -X POST --data '{
  "name": "example.com",
  "kind": "Native",
  "masters": [],
  "nameservers": ["ns1.example.org", "ns2.example.org"],
  "records": [
      "name": "www.example.com",
      "type": "A",
      "ttl": 3600,
      "content": “",
      "disabled": false
}' -v -H 'X-API-Key: changeme'
