What are these DNS changes?

Alright, you've created your first redirect, but then these DNS changes appear.

DNS changes are necessary for letting the internet know where to find the redirection service that you've just setup for this domain. We do this by making DNS changes on the domain in question.

These DNS changes need to be made at your domain provider. In most cases, this can be done with your domain registrar. If you use external nameservers (Cloudflare for instance), you need to make the changes there.

You can find the nessesary DNS changes in your redirect.pizza account after adding the redirect, or see the following support article: What DNS types can I use?

Both CNAME and A types are valid options. We recommend using CNAME for everything, except non-www (apex) records where the A record is required. A big plus of using the CNAME is automatic IPV6 support and that it's always up-to-date if there ever is an IP change.

Unsure where your DNS is hosted? A good way to check this is to see where your nameservers point. You can check this with an online tool like WhatsMyDNS: https://www.whatsmydns.net/#NS/example.com

Made the necessary DNS changes? It may take up to 24 hours before these changes are fully propagated! Please be patient.
