To go live with your site on Flywheel, you’ll need to complete these steps:
Remove the password protection for your site in Flywheel. You can turn the password off from via the ‘overview’ tab for your site. The on/off switch can be found in the bottom right section of the page.
Add any domains you will be pointing at your site to the domain list on the site’s page in Flywheel. This includes www.example.com and example.com.
Set the appropriate domain to primary. This will update your site’s database to use the correct domain. (Note: if you checked the “Primary?” box when you added the domain in the step above, you can skip this; it will already be done.)
Point your domain(s) at the site’s IP address (found directly below the domain list in Flywheel). For more information on how to point DNS at your site, visit our help article on setting up DNS. We also have registrar-specific articles for setting DNS on GoDaddy, MediaTemple, Hover, Namecheap, and Bluehost.
