Frequent Questions: Web Forwarding

Do I need to use LiveDNS?

We recommend that you use liveDNS with this service. If you are not, the form will prompt you to switch, and will help you make sure your DNS records have the appropriate entry to work properly.

How long will it take for the changes to take effect?

It depends. If the zone file of the domain name you are forwarding already has an A record pointing to 217.70.184.55 or a CNAME record pointing to webredir.gandi.net, then your change should take effect within a few minutes.

If a change must be made to the domain name’s zone file, it will require several hours for the change to take effect due to the DNS propagation delay.

How do I edit a web forwarding entry?

If you make a mistake, return to the domain’s list of forwarding addresses. You can update a forwarding address by clicking on the pencil icon on the right.

To remove a forwarding address, click the red trash bin icon to delete the entry.
