Is my domain registrar compatible with Duda responsive sites?

This article refers to a previous version of the Duda Responsive Website Builder. Click here for help content on the current Duda editor.


Almost all domain hosts work with our responsive sites, but some domain hosts do not let you make the needed changes to your domain's settings. This guide tells you which domain registrars will work with our responsive sites so that you can make sure your site can go live.

Who is my domain registrar?

Your domain registrar is usually the person or group you bought your domain from. In some cases, your domain is hosted by a domain host and not your registrar. If you're not sure who your domain registrar is, the best way to find out is to contact the person or group that you bought your domain from.

Fully Compatible Domain Registrars

These domain registrars will allow you to create a CNAME and a 301 redirect, making them fully compatible with our responsive sites.

*These are now available within our responsive editor

Partially Compatible Domain Registrars

Some domain registrars don't let you set up 301 redirects. Fortunately you can get around this using an A record we have set up for this purpose. The reason we don't normally recommend doing it this way is that this will not work for HTTPS sites. For this reason, we recommend transferring to a different domain registrar if possible. Your domain registrar should be able to help you transfer your domain.

*We've had reports that when you set up a CNAME record with 1and1 any emails you have with them will stop working, so if you want these to keep working you may need to change domain hosts to use our responsive sites.

Other Registrars

If you are not sure whether your domain host is compatible or your domain host is not listed as fully compatible, we recommend that you check if your domain registrar is compatible. Call your domain registrar and ask them two very simple yes/no questions:

  1. "Can I create CNAME records with your service?"
  2. "Can I use a '301 redirect' with your service, without continuing my website hosting?"

If the answer to both of these questions is "yes", then they are fully compatible with our responsive sites.
