Gandi.net domain registrar guide

Gandi.net is a domain registrar, where you can buy an available domain or subdomain name. Gandi provides many domain names up to 700 extensions.

For shortening links in Short.cm, you have to add your domain name or to use a generic one "smth.shortcm.li." If you don't have a domain, you can acquire it from Short.cm or any domain registrar. The advantage of buying a domain from Short.cm is that the domain will be active at once.

If you acquire a domain from the registrar, you have to follow some activation steps. Learn the instruction below on how to add a Gandi domain to Short.cm account.

  1. Sign in Gandi service and buy an available domain.

  2. Go to Short.cm account. Click on "Add new domain." add-new-domain

  3. Input the domain to "Add your domain" field. Now the domain is inactive. add-domain-gandi

  4. Go to your Gandi account and choose "Domains" from the left. domains-gandi

  5. Choose a necessary domain. choose-gandi

  6. Click "DNS records." dns-gandi

  7. If you configure:

    • a domain — delete all unnecessary records of the domain; delete-gandi

    • a subdomain — do not delete records of the domain you already own.

  8. Click "Add." add-record-gandi

  9. Add "A-record" with "@" name and 52.21.33.16 IP address (it connects Gandi and Short.cm). records-gandi
