Add support for CNAME record on zone apex (aka ANAME/ALIAS entries in DNS zone files
Suggested by Marcus Stade, Jaroslav, noclat
To take advantage of the CDN capabilities of other hosts, it'd be great if Gandi would support ALIAS entries in the DNS zone file. As an example, GitHub recommends using ALIAS records when using custom domains for pages hosted on their services.
This functionality would make a lot of developers happy, so that they could enjoy Content Delivery Network and Denial of Service mitigation offered by services like Github, and have the ability to point their bare domain to their applications hosted by services like Heroku.
Suggested by GregC
Have the possibility to download the invoice in PDF
Add SIEVE management on Gandi Mail
Suggested by Jack
It could be cool to have access to the SIEVE extension on Gandi Mail and have the possibility to filter mails directly on the server.
A Gandi plugin for WHMCS
Suggested by Nico, ShenZhen QuYu Tech CO.,LTD
The possibility to link Gandi with whmcs.com, the billing platform
Add DynDNS service
Suggested by JamesDYN
Add a DynDNS service on Gandi
Add the possibility to use subdomain on gandi mail
Suggested by SITE SECONDE
With the possibility to create email like firstname.lastname@example.org
Add a domain alias on email
Suggested by Nickö
Add the possibility to alias a domain to an other for emails (ex all emails from @toto.net to @toto.com)
Expired domains monitoring
Suggested by Marou
Informs customers when a monitored domain has expired and ready to be registered with Gandi.
Suggested by David
Would Gandi be willing to set up some sort of affiliate linking process? I have a couple of sites using your hosting platform and I'd like to reference you in them in the hope I can promote you guys a little more. I really like using Gandi for my hosting and I was wondering how I could promote the service in some kind of mutually beneficial way?
Suggested by Sebbb
Allow SSHFP records at least in expert mode.
SSHFP is standardized in the RFC4255 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4255.txt)
Offer DNSSEC on Gandi's nameservers
Suggested by kallisti5
Offer support for DNSSEC on your DNS servers ([abc].dns.gandi.net).
Suggested by laurent
Add the possibility to login by using an OpenID
Better hosted email/groupware
Suggested by ding
I'd love to be able to pay 1.5 - 2x as much as Gandi Mail for something along the lines of Zimbra Open Source Edition mail and calendar on my domains. In particular, the iCal, CalDAV, and actually useful server-side mail filtering features would be nice.
Add a mobile phone version
Suggested by FredTev
Add the possibility to access to Gandi via mobile phone
Add the possibility to add a web forward in bulk
Suggested by Otto
I want to add a web forward to several domains in one click
Activate autoresponder from the webmail
Suggested by JB
add the possibility to activate mail autoresponder directly from the webmail
Suggested by Ben
It would be great if the two factor authentication would directly work with Yubikeys.
Make @gandi.net email DMARC compliant
Suggested by Schack
In order to make it harder for cybercriminals to trick gandi.net customers with phishing/spear phishing emails, it would be nice if gandi.net could make their email DMARC compliant.
DMARC is being used by many companies to protect customers against spoofed email, examples are : Facebook, Netflix, Paypal, Twitter, LinkedIn and many more.
Besides being a great anti-phishing tool, it may have some sort of effect on deliverability, at least it's recommended by Google to make your email DMARC compliant: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/81126?hl=en#authentication
Suggested by etimau
Add the possibility to specify a favicon to the transparent web forwarding
Set default: auto-renew for domains
Suggested by Simon
It would be nice to be able to set defaults for new domains, *particularly* making all new purchased domains set to auto-renew by default.
Suggested by Kaishou
Soviet Union domains would be very nice to have here at Gandi. :)
Reset 2-factor authentication using emergency codes
Suggested by Rohin
Currently the only way to reset 2-factor authentication (required when you change or reformat phones) is via a phone call with Gandi Support. However a better option might be to use emergency codes that are created at the time of enabling 2-factor (the way Dropbox does it).
Suggested by Quinode
Option to set the session timeout while logged in to gandi.net (first suggested by Geoff on gandibar)
Add possibility to login with OpenID
Suggested by Hedy
Add possibility to login with OpenID
Prepaid account and insufficient funds
Suggested by Thomas
Give how much we have to put on prepaid when the account is insufficient.
Add sub technical contact
Suggested by pirod
Add the possibility to enable sub technical contact with limited rights on a domain
per-domain control of WHOS
Suggested by chrisjj
Please add per-domain control of
* contact email address substitution a.k.a. "Anti-Spam"
Suggested by Lidéjis
Add .GP support
GIT support for zone files
Suggested by vr
Instead of relying on your web interface, it could be great to enable git repositories for zone file management, with push-to-deploy capability.
Suggested by fjulien
Add possibility to buy .ML domains
import mail aliases/forwarding addresses
Suggested by Marcel, Club41Français, Hugo, Chapo
There is a possibility to export mail aliases (forwarding addresses). It would be nice if there were an import (and bulk edit) option available as well.
Suggested by Matthieu Oliviers
Please add .jobs to the list of TLDs that can be registered at Gandi.
Allow direct submission of DNSSEC DS records
Suggested by Pete S.
Gandi's current DNSSEC system allows customers to select from a list of DNSSEC algorithms and add their public key. Gandi's systems then compute the DS record and send it upstream to the registry.
It would be excellent if users could have the option of submit the DS record itself, rather than needing to submit the public key and have Gandi compute the DS records: several managed DNS services will give customers the DS records for the registry but don't provide the public key.
Add 2-step auth to webmail (roundcube)
Suggested by viccuad
Install Roundcube plugins for providing 2-step auth or at least to prevent brute-force attacks.
Roundcube is well suited with plugins, make use of them to provide an outstandind service without added work:
Suggested by Patrick
It would be nice to be able to register .az (ccTLD of Azerbaijan) at Gandi.
Payment method: Webmoney
Suggested by Reza
Please consider Webmoney as payment method instead of Paypal which is difficult to use for some countries.
Show zone file diff before activating
Suggested by zw95
It would be neat if the DNS management interface's zone-update confirmation step could show a diff of the current zone and the new zone so you can see exactly what changes you're about to make live.
Replace address and phone in WHOIS for TLDs without private domain registration
Suggested by jw
TLDs without support for "private domain registration", such as .email (often used for personal purposes), should still support hiding or replacing some personal information to safeguard privacy. Could the address and phone number be replaced by an address and phone number owned by Gandi?
Other registrars seem to support this (e.g. WhoisGuard, Domains By Proxy). I do not want to hide my name, just my home address and phone number, to guarantee privacy and prevent spam.
PDF guides and contract is bad
Suggested by BSD32-GANDI
I'm new to Gandi, and my official language is Portuguese-Brazil.
I received an e-mail containing the URL of a PDF file in English. This is not for me.
It would be better to send a web page in HTML with the option to download the PDF.
DNSSEC for .CX domains
Suggested by trouble
The .CX ccTLD has supported DNSSEC since April 2013. Please make it possible to manage DNSSEC for .CX domains (ideally via the web interface and/or API, but at least enable support to do it manually).
More DNS servers
Suggested by Pete S.
Currently Gandi offers customers DNS service from servers in Baltimore and Paris. It would be nice if DNS service was also provided in other locations like Gandi's Luxembourg facility, the US west coast, Australia, Asia, etc. for better performance and less latency.
.ltd.uk Domain Names
Suggested by Luke Antins
Add support for .ltd.uk domain names
DNSSEC for .CA domains
Suggested by Olga Nuber
The .CA ccTLD has supported DNSSEC since January 2013. Please make it possible to manage DNSSEC for .CA domains (ideally via the web interface and/or API, but at least enable support to do it manually).
Note from Gandi: ETA June 2014
DNSSEC for .CAT domains
Suggested by Jöha
Who doesn't love cats? No-one. Well, maybe dog people. But dog people wouldn't be buying a .CAT domain, right?
The .CAT sTLD, intended for the Catalan-speaking community, used for Nyan Cat videos, has supported DNSSEC since autumn 2009.
Keep your cats safe. Use DNSSEC.
Suggested by Olga Nuber
Add the possibility to login by using Persona :
OAuth2 support for API
Suggested by Chaz6
Now that Gandi supports TOTP, it should be possible to use this in order to authorize individual applications rather than giving each use a single API key as this defeats the point of having 2-factor authentication.
Domain names for planet Earth
Suggested by Tim
Please can we have domain names that make us think about this beautiful planet, and perhaps remind us to live with humility and look after all that makes our lives possible.
.earth .ocean .biodiversity .sacredearth .biophilia .oceania .oneplanettoliveon .pricelessearth .pricelessocean .cetacean .plankton .whale
Anything else come to mind?
allow email forwarding for owners of FIRST.LAST.name domains
Suggested by Human
I own a FIRST.LAST.name domain, and the current domain provider lets me forward email directed to FIRST@LAST.name to the address of my choice.
I would like to transfer this domain to gandi.net, but according to this page ( https://www.gandi.net/domain/name/info ) I wouldn't be able to set up forwarding from FIRST@LAST.name without owning LAST.name as well.
The main point of the .name extension when it debuted was to allow a permanent personalized email forwarding address. Hardly anybody could use it as intended if only the few people who owned a LAST.name domain could forward email.
Please make the infrastructure improvements necessary to allow FIRST.LAST.name domain owners to forward email properly. In my case, I have about half a dozen domains that I would transfer over if you could make this happen.
Keep forwarded mail to mailbox
Suggested by Meroje
Have the possibility to keep a forwarded mail into an existing email account (mailbox) : "forward has copy"
How can I give the domain to another account of Gandi.net?
Suggested by Onuphriy
I registered a domain capital-invest.es and I don't need it anymore and my partner want to take it. How can I give this domain to her? Thanks.
DNSSEC for .ch and .li domains
Suggested by Andre
DNSSEC support for .ch and .li would be very nice. The Switch registry has support for it.
Note from Gandi: DNSSEC support has been added for .ch domains. DNSSEC on .li is in progress.
DNSSEC for .nu
Suggested by David
Now that the .SE registry has taken over operation of the .NU registry, implementing DNSSEC support for .nu domains should be straightforward.
.gs DNSSEC support
Suggested by lupine
The .gs zone is signed, but you don't let me upload records to it.
SSL Certificate availability
Suggested by jpj
When a F/B Billing profile renew a domain certificate, this new certificate is not visible for technical (who is normally in charge of its installation).
Can you make is available for techs ?
Make a suggestion Back
Suggested by nat
Support .net.uk domains, or at least allow them to be transfered in.
