I have my domain on GANDI, i changed the Name Servers with: www.nougats-silvain.fr
The domain name redirects correctly to Netlify.
More than 36 hours after, i still have the message:
Thanks a lot!

NETLIFY records should exist for the apex and
We know that using your own custom domain (Example: http://somecooldomain.com) on a Netlify site can be a bit confusing at times. The good news is that our team has written an abundance of guides covering various questions regarding domains. This listing has all of our “best practice” guides about configuring and using Netlify DNS and custom domains on our service, grouped by topic area. We have a few guides that cover multiple topic areas, so we have listed them under each rel…
I’m not sure to understand…
The main domain must redirect on Ionos (ip 188.8.131.52), where the current site is hosted (a Wordpress, waiting the new website Vue).
The new website is on
staging.nougats-silvain.fr, and i need to add a SSL on this subdomain (problem with authentication ).
I thought that patching DNS on Netlify would allow me to use Netlifty SSL
You tell me i can’t do that ?
Certainly you can have records pointing to other services. But the domain in the screenshot in your original post is
And on GANDI, for 48 hours now, i have the good Server Name.
We agree that Netlify should not tell me that:
www.nougats-silvain.fr doesn't appear to be served by Netlify
I thought you said
(and likely was to point to another service
(where the site is hosted now.) If that is the case, you shouldn’t not add them to the new Netlify site, you only add the

Netlify informed me that they couldn’t handle SSL because the domain name wasn’t managed by them, so I thought I should just patch the domain name on Netlify.
But maybe I’m wrong…
According to you, i have to delete
nougats-silvain.fr) from Custom Domains, and i just keep
And then Netlify can add the SSL on staging?
If you have
staging.nougats-silvain.fr pointing to a Netlify site, Netlify will handle the SSL for that subdomain.
Netlify can’t do anything about SSL for domains that don’t point to their service.
(thanks a lot for your time
On GANDI, i created a web redirection:
So normally, keeping only
staging, Netlify should be able to handle SSL.
Is that it?
If you have set the NS on Gandi to Netlify
(which you have) all DNS is now handled by Netlify and not Gandi.
Ok, but i always need to redirect
nougats-silvain.fr on the actual website on IONOS.
So, i need to create the DNS for this domain, and so, add it on Custom Domain.
We agree ?
I need to add SSL certificate to
nougats-silvain.fr must redirect to IONOS.
staging.nougats-silvain.fr must redirect to Netlify.
And my domain uses Netlify DNS.
I’m so stupid.
I clicked on “set as primary domain” on staging, and everything is ok…
Thanks for your time and patience
It’s called learning.
Stupidity has nothing to do with it.
