How to use PageSeeder's Web service API


/hosts/{hostname} [PATCH]


Edits a host – only changes specified parameters.


NameDescriptionRequiredTypeDefault value
externalWhether the host is externalnoboolean
nameThe new name of the hostnostring
restart-emailWhether to restart the email server if requirednobooleantrue
virtualWhether the host is virtual. PageSeeder v5.99 or higher.noboolean


The name of the host to create must be at least two characters long, at most 100 characters long, a valid host according to RFC 3986 - section 3.2.2 host , and match the following regular expression:


PageSeeder supports IPv4 addresses and regular names.

The hostname is not case-sensitive and it is not case-preserving: it is always converted to lower case before being stored in the database.


The purpose of this parameter is to prevent the email server from being restarted if the emailDomain global property  is set to pshosts.

When the emailDomain template property is set to pshosts, the PageSeeder email server must be restarted to handle the new host. it does so unless this parameter is set to false.


This service requires administrator.


The updated host is returned as a <host> element and includes any existing <alias>

  <host id="1" name="" external="false" virtual="true">
      <alias id="3" name=""/>
