Frequently asked questions

What is a domain name?

Domain names are essential to having an online presence. They are an easy way for people to know where to find your website and to send you emails. It’s the "gandi.net" in https://www.gandi.net.

Without a domain name, it would be necessary for everyone to know the exact IP address of the machine where your website is currently hosted (need hosting?). That might be fine if there was just one, but eventually everyone would have to start making a list somewhere, with the names of websites and their corresponding IP addresses they want to remember just so they could keep track of them all.

This is why domains are so very useful. Having a domain name (learn more) makes it possible for people to find you by just knowing the name of your website or email address. The domain name system takes care of converting your name into machine address where your content is hosted.

How can I secure my domain with DNSSEC?

Hackers are increasingly targeting the infrastructure of the internet itself by rerouting how domain names resolve and, in the process, stealing data. One simple way to prevent this from happening to your website and emails is by activating DNSSEC on your domain.

Gandi provides simple and free DNSSEC admin for domain names registered with us. If you are using our LiveDNS nameservers, the entire process is automatic.

To secure your domain with DNSSEC:

  1. Go to your domain's admin at gandi.net
  2. Choose the "DNSSEC" tab
  3. Click "Enable DNSSEC"

It's done! Your domain will now be protected from DNS cache poisoning, and your users can be assured that when they go to your website they will not be redirected elsewhere by a scammer. For added security, you can combine this with an SSL Certificate from Gandi as well.

This service is also available for customers using external (custom) nameservers. You can add up to 4 keys on our DNSSEC interface (learn more).
