DNS Information for Site Launch
Learn how to set up and configure DNS for a new website launch.
In order to migrate your current site to your new Pugpig site you will need to make some changes to the DNS records to point your domain name to the new site.
These records are added by the domain owner through their hosting providers UI, you may need to speak with your IT team, or domain owner to make these changes.
Adding these A records will allow these IP addresses (Fastly, our CDN) to push content to the domain.
Sites often use an APEX domain (without the www), e.g., acme.com, so you will need to add the following A Records:
And ideally the following AAAA Records:
If you wish to have a subdomain, e.g., www.acme.com, you also need the relevant CNAME for the domain.
If you provide both www.acme.com and acme.com we will always redirect to the www version.
www.acme.com 300 IN CNAME pugpig.map.fastly.net
Once those are done we will need to follow up with some steps on our side in order to make the new site live.
