If you own your domain, we will need you to update your name servers prior to launch.
We will email you the name server updates you need to make. The specifics on how to make these updates will depend on where you purchased your domain. How-to guides for several common services are as follows:
Please reply to our existing email thread letting us know when you have made this update.
In some cases it can take up to 72 hours for name server updates to propagate. It is therefore helpful to plan ahead and make this update as soon as possible.
Updating name servers will not take your currently live blog or site offline. That's because we will not actually update the A or CNAME records until launch day; until then your existing DNS records will remain and continue pointing to your existing site.
Updating your name servers is a much more robust long-term solution than pointing directly to an IP address because it allows us to make subsequent updates without needing to burden you. It allows us to flexibly respond to all of our clients' needs and maximize performance across our network.
