Going Live

How do I make my website go live?

During the period we are working on your new website, it will have a temporary domain e.g. mysite.flywheelsites.com. When you’re ready to go live, your actual domain name mysite.com will be used.

To do that:

If you don’t have a domain name for your web site yet, we will provide one for you and make all the necessary changes.

If you already have a domain name, we can make the changes for you. We’ll just need you to provide us access to your domain registrar’s account e.g. GoDaddy, NetFirms, etc. After we’re done, you can change your login info, of course.

You can also make the changes yourself, or (better yet) get your domain registrar to make them for you:

  • Remove any existing A Records from the DNS. Do not remove any MX Records.
  • Add an A Record for the domain name, and point it to 159.203.10.190
  • Add a CNAME for the www, and point it to the domain name.
  • Change your name servers to use these 2 name servers only:
    marjory.ns.cloudflare.com
    nick.ns.cloudflare.com

In any case, it may take a few hours until the new web site goes live, as domain changes take a while to propagate.
