When you migrate your site to Kinsta and add a site, a temporary domain is typically created for you automatically (yoursite.kinsta.cloud). After finishing the transfer, please make sure you add the final domain to your install before you update your DNS and point your site’s traffic to us. To do this, follow the steps below.

How to Add Domain

Step 1

In MyKinsta, click into your site and on the left-hand side click on “Domains.”

Step 4

You will then want to assign a primary domain. This is the domain visitors will see, whether you choose your www or non-www version. If you are just migrating to Kinsta, ensure to pick the same version you were previously using.

After that, you’ll only have to update your DNS and allow some time for the DNS to propagate, which typically is 24 hours.
