Gandi LiveDNS

LiveDNS is Gandi.net's DNS platform, a completely new service that offers its own API and its own nameservers.

If your domain is registered with Gandi, you can use Cloudron's new Gandi DNS backend to manage the DNS. When apps are installed and removed, Cloudron will automatically add and remove DNS records. When using Cloudron Email, it will also automatically setup the MX, DMARC, DKIM records!

To get started:

  • Ensure that your domain is using LiveDNS. Go the DNS Records page in Gandi to verify that you are using LiveDNS. Old domains might see a Switch to LiveDNS banner. If you see this, click on Gandi's DNS Records button and wait for 2-3 hours for Gandi to migrate the domain.

  • Next, create an LiveDNS API key from the security section

  • In the Cloudron dashboard, choose Gandi LiveDNS from the drop down and provide the API key.

GoDaddy

GoDaddy is the world's largest registrar.

If your domain is registered with GoDaddy, you can use Cloudron's new GoDaddy DNS backend to manage the DNS. When apps are installed and removed, Cloudron will automatically add and remove DNS records. When using Cloudron Email, it will also automatically setup the MX, DMARC, DKIM records!

To get started:

  • Create a GoDaddy API Key at their developer portal. When creating a new key select production environment.

  • In the Cloudron dashboard, choose GoDaddy from the drop down and provide the key and secret.
