Gandi Domain Editing and Gandi/Google Combinations

You can use both Gandi BaseKit websites and Google Sites together, but you have to remember the “.”.

When editing Zone Files (DNS settings) at Gandi, remember to add an extra “.” at the end of each value, or settings will not work.

This is particularly useful when you want to combine a Gandi BaseKit website with various Google Sites websites.

For example, I run a BaseKit site at, and I want to use Google Sites to get around the 3 page free limit for BaseKit. So to add a Google Site to Gandi, I need to map the site using Google Apps Domain settings, log into Gandi, and add the following setting to the Zone File:

Example: SubDomain TTL IN CNAME GoogleDNSURL.

In Reality: Test 10800 IN CNAME
