Verify Gandi & GitLab Pages
Notes to set up entries
GitLab was unable to verify the custom domain, their suggested entries didn’t seem to work.
Using the following worked:
sub = Your subdomain (or @ for root)
sub 1800 IN A 188.8.131.52 sub 1800 IN TXT "gitlab-pages-verification-code=###CODE###"
Make sure to double check the IP for GitLab pages.
Note: This failed after switching to CloudFlare, which accepted the GitLab suggested input and verified within minutes.
CloudFlare was easy to set up, after verification it seems to ‘just work’ under the free plan.
Their instructions are very straight forward and easy to follow.
Note: See my previous post regarding GitLab pages verification, you will need to add the suggested TXT/CNAME.
