What is Kinsta’s WordPress Temporary URL?

Updated on November 05, 2017

Every site created at Kinsta comes with a WordPress temporary URL so that it’s immediately accessible to you even before you point your own domain at it. These temporary domains are in the form of yoursite.kinsta.com. Google has it’s policies on duplicate content/URLs and to avoid this SEO issue we enforce a robot-restricting robots.txt on the temporary URL meaning the yoursite.kinsta.com URL’s won’t be indexed by the search engines. Same applies for the staging environment.

Once your site/install is created, you’ll be able to access your new WordPress site using the temporary URL you see in your dashboard.

After transferring your site to Kinsta, you’ll also have to add your final domain on the Site/Install Details page, and point your DNS to Kinsta. Once the DNS propagates, you won’t need the temporary URL anymore.
