Woohoo, your sites are ready to be upgraded to Flywheel’s new Cloud Platform! In this article, we’ll look over how to prepare your sites for the upgrade by updating DNS.
To prepare your site and begin the upgrade process, you’ll need to update the DNS records for all domains associated with the site. To get started, visit the Upgrade Center. Here you’ll find a list of all your sites and domains that are eligible for the upgrade, along with some helpful info.
Before our system can schedule the upgrade for your site, it first needs to confirm that all your site’s domains are pointing to their new IP address(es). There are two ways to update DNS:
If your site’s domain supports Domain Connect, all you need to do is click the Update DNS button, log in to your DNS provider, and Flywheel will automatically configure the domain for you. If necessary, repeat this process for any additional domains on the site.
Domain names that do not support Domain Connect will need to have their DNS records pointed manually. This process can be tricky sometimes, so check out our provider-specific instructions below.
