Provisioning with Gandi Services

During this step, we are in the process of compiling all the domain name information and sending it to the registry.

If your order is stuck in this phase, it is likely due to the following:

  • Corporate extension: please wait 3 days following your order. These are handled manually in some cases, and so the processing time is longer. If, after 3 days, your order is still stuck, please contact our support team.

  • A Registry Error: Our specialized team does their best to proactively fix these errors within 1 day. If your order is still stuck in this period for more than 1 day, please contact our support team.
