BookMyName hooks for LE-Certbot

The following crude scripts can be used as hooks to authenticate domains hosted by BookMyName (super cheap domains) using DNS challenges with this initial certbot command:

certbot certonly --manual --preferred-challenges=dns --manual-auth-hook /path/to/bmn-JXXXXX-auth.sh --manual-cleanup-hook /path/to/bmn-AAXXXX-cleanup.sh -d yourdomain.com -d *.yourdomain.com

BMN has a pseudo API, though it's slow as hell to update (~15/20 minutes)

Obviously: place files where only your certbot runs, lock them down to be read only by whatever user runs your certonly/renew commands, often root, and change the BMN_USER/PASS variables

Feel free to have the cleanup script loop through a dig _acme-challenge.$DOMAIN TXT +short | tr -d “\”“ and clean each entry, if entries get stranded, the answer would end up to long to validate a cert request
