RFC 7231: "The 410 (Gone) status code indicates that access to the target resource is no longer available at the origin server and that this condition is likely to be permanent.
The 410 response is primarily intended to assist the task of web maintenance by notifying the recipient that the resource is intentionally unavailable and that the server owners desire that remote links to that resource be removed."
Art. 17 GDPR Right to erasure ('right to be forgotten'):
"Where the controller has made the personal data public and is obliged pursuant to paragraph 1 to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data."
To serve 410 responses for your domain, add a
CNAME record pointing to
Note that your readers will see the default message. If you don't want them to be distressed about the sudden domain shutdown you might want to announce them first.
CNAME does not play well with
HTTPS. In order for this site to work a SSL certificate would have to be generated but there's a limit on how many domains can be added for the same certificate.
So, don't use
410go.net but pick a random letter among
f and set the
CNAME to a subdomain, like
q.410go.net. Then wait 24-48hours and see if it was picked up by the script. (If it doesn't seem to work automatically, send an email then check again in 24 hours).
