When you are ready to launch a Domain in Composer you can switch it from Production mode to Live mode in order to accept the DNS changes on the domain. You should only set and confirm your site to go live when, or just before, your DNS settings have been updated to launch your site.
Note: This article does not apply if you are going from a Composer site, to a new redesigned Composer site.
To set your site Live, find the Domain Settings section for the appropriate Domain in Composer. These settings can be found when you hover over the Domain, click the 3-dot menu, and select Settings.
Under the General tab, you’ll see the Domain’s Primary URL and a Domain is live checkbox in the Host Names section.
- Copy the Primary Host Name.
- Check the box next to Domain is live.
Note: The box Domain is live should ONLY be checked when, or just before, your DNS settings have been updated to launch the site. Checking the box may create broken links in some areas of your site until the DNS updates are revolving properly.
On the next screen, in the Confirm going live window, follow these steps to set your site to Live:
3. Paste the Primary Host Name you copied in Step 1 into the spot next to the red arrow below.
4. Click Confirm.
5. Click Apply in the domain settings modal to apply the update.
