What DNS types can I use?


We recommend using the CNAME option whenever possible. This can be used for all non-apex domains (hostnames without www). For instance: www.example.com or test.example.com



The A record can be used for all HTTP redirects. This option is requires for the apex hostnames (non-www). For instance: example.com


For full IPv6 capability, you can add the following record next to the A record defined above. The CNAME record contains both the A & the AAAA record.



When using email forwarding, you need to specify our MX & SPF records to allow forwarding. The following MX records should be added:

mx1.redirect.pizza (priority 10)
mx2.redirect.pizza (priority 20)

The following SPF record should be set:

v=spf1 include:spf.redirect.pizza -all


If your domain specifies any CAA records, it's important to allow the LetsEncrypt CA & Sertigo as well. redirect.pizza uses LetsEncrypt & ZeroSSL to get a certificate for your your domain.

If you don't have any CAA records set, this isn't required!
