How to Use Tools in the Gandi Interface to Organize Your Domains

When viewing the list of domains you manage you can display the list in advanced view or simple view. Advanced view and simple view both have some additional options that make them a particularly useful organizational tool for resellers. You can switch between advanced view and simple view follow these steps:

  1. Log into your Gandi account.
  2. Select “Domain” from the left menu.
  3. Next to the search bar click the button that says “Advanced View.” If the “Advanced View” button is dark blue then you are in advanced view.

Simple View

Simple view is the simpler of the two views. While it has less options, it is easier to use. Some of the things you can do in simple view are:

  • Renew domains with a single click.
  • View domains by organization by selecting an organization from the “Organization” drop down menu.
  • Sort by expiration date or alphabetically by clicking the options next to “Sort By.”

Advanced View

Advanced view is more complex to use, but displays more information and has more options. The following sections explain how to use these features.

Search Filters

Search filters allow you to display only domains that match certain criteria. You can add search filters by clicking “Filters” next to the search bar.

Search options include: - Extension - Organization - Tag - Owner - Expiration date - Transfer lock stuatus - Nameservers type - Expiration date (specify date range)

Once you have entered your search options you will see the list of domains which match that criteria. Select “Clear all” to remove all of the search filters.

Management Menu

In advanced view you can click on the three dots to the right of the domain to see actions that can be performed on those domains from the list. These management options include:

  • Manage
  • Renew
  • Quickshare
  • Remove transfer lock
  • Apply a configuration template (read more about these here)
  • Edit tags) (read more about these here)

Tags

In advanced view, you can use tags to further organize your domains. These tags will also show up in simple view, though you can only edit them in advanced view. You can read more about these tags here.

Configuration Templates

Configuration templates allow you to save DNS records, nameserver settings, and email options and apply them to any chosen domain name. Configuration templates are another tool that are especially useful for resellers, or anyone who manages a large number of domain names. You can read more about them here.
