Going Live with Register.com
There are only a few steps that you need to complete before your website is live. Now that you've got all your content ready to go, it's time to launch your new site. Below are the steps for taking your website live with Register.com

Finding Your IP Address

First, you'll want to site's IP address. It's located in your Greenhouse Dashboard under Site Settings then Search Engine Settings. Copy this number and save it for the next steps.

Changing Your A Record                     

If you registered your domain name through Register.com, here are the steps you will take to make your website live:                          

Step 1 - Go to Register.com and click on the link in the top right  corner called Manage Account

Step 2 - Enter your username and password

Step 3 - Hover your mouse over Domains and then select Manage. If you have more than one domain name, you will then want to click on the domain name that you want to work with            

Step 4 - Scroll down to the bottom of the page and under Advanced Technical Settings  you will find a column with an A in it.  Go to the right and click Edit IP Address Records           

If Advanced Technical Settings shows, "You are unable to modify these settings because you are no longer on Register.com's DNS. Please click Restore Default DNS Server settings if you would like to switch back to Register.com's DNS." HOWEVER, this will change all the other settings for your domain, which means that your email (MX) records will go down. You may want to stop and read our help article about name servers here.

Step 5 - On this page, there will already be three existing IP addresses in the right text box for the records "www", a blank text box, and "*(an asterisk)". In the text boxes on the right you will insert your Clover Site's IP address (the one that you wrote down from the beginning of this help article)             

Do not put in the IP address listed below, this is just an example.                                                

Step 6 - Once you've entered your IP Address in the fields, click Continue once and then click Continue again on the next page            

You're done! Your site should be live within a couple hours, It can take up to 24 hours for everything to start showing up properly. Go celebrate!                                                                

Changing Your Nameservers

Step 1 - Under the "Advanced Technical Settings" section you will will see some text in yellow which tells you to click on "Restore Default DNS Server Settings"
Step 2 - Go directly above and you will see text in blue that says "Restore Default DNS Server Settings" with an arrow next to it. Go ahead and click that arrow next to the sentence.   
Step 3 - Once you have clicked "Restore Default DNS Server Settings", the Advanced Technical Settings section will change to allow you to edit the A Records. To complete the process of launching your site, scroll back up to see how to update your A Record with Register.com
