Configuring your domain for a Behance ProSite website
So you have created a website with Behance and now need to configure your domain name at Gandi so that it displays your website.
After having finished configuring your Gandi domain for your Behance ProSite website, you will need to make some technical changes to your domain at Behance (see Step 3 below). For security purposes, Gandi cannot perform these changes for you.
Step 1: Log into your domain name
Step 2: Change your zone file
You now need to make a change or two to your DNS zone file so that your domain points at your website.
There are two ways of doing this:
To add the A record or CNAME record, you need to first make an editable copy of your zone file (see instructions).
The entry or entries you need to add will look something like one of these (check your Behance/ProSite account to be sure):
www 10800 IN A 22.214.171.124 www 10800 IN CNAME example.prosite.com.
portfolio.example.com) just replace
.) at the end of
example.prosite.com.or it won't work!
Don't forget to add an A record for the bare domain, in addition to the
www subdomain as above (unless you've added web forwarding to redirect
@ 10800 IN A 126.96.36.199
Which entries you add depends on your own site's configuration.
Example of a zone
Here is an example of a zone file for a domain that will bring visitors to a ProSite/Behance website:
www 10800 IN A 188.8.131.52 @ 10800 IN A 184.108.40.206 @ 10800 IN MX 50 fb.mail.gandi.net. @ 10800 IN MX 10 spool.mail.gandi.net. imap 10800 IN CNAME access.mail.gandi.net. smtp 10800 IN CNAME relay.mail.gandi.net. webmail 10800 IN CNAME agent.mail.gandi.net. blog 10800 IN CNAME blogs.vip.gandi.net. pop 10800 IN CNAME access.mail.gandi.net.
Step 3: Update your Behance ProSite settings
Enter your custom domain on ProSite in Settings → Change Domain.
Your domain name should then display your portfolio website.
Step 4: Add web forwarding (optional)
You may want certain domain names to automatically redirect visitors to the address you configured above. If so, just add a web forwarding entry for each domain or subdomain you want to be redirected.
