Bringing Your Web Site Live

To display your Kigo web sites, you must register the domain name that you'd like to use with a domain registrar. There are many different domain registration companies available.

Checking DNS Propagation for Your Domain

  1. Click Test A Record. The web site appears in a new tab.
  2. Determine if your DNS has propagated. Green checks indicate the DNS has propagated for that area, while a red x indicates that the DNS has not propagated.
