Hi Amy,

Could you take me through the steps you are using to upload your site?

I will try and assist you as much as I possible can.

Yeah, I am going to the publish website option and entering my existing domain. Nothing is showing up at okchopelink.org and when I check it at synthasite it says invalid.

Hi Amy,

you need to make sure you log into your own domain via the control panel your host has given you and create an A record and point the IP to 208.75.208.172.

SynthaSite doesnt actually upload anything to your domain.

You could however download your site from SynthaSite and physically upload it via FTP to your domain.

Either way should work just fine.

Hope this info helps
