Domain Mapping on, but shows as URL

    I have the same problem as described in this post. Domain mapping purchased, nameservers changed, but shows up in the URL instead of

    The domain diagnostic tool told me this:

    Oops, No Primary Site Set
    There is no primary domain set for This means that although will forward to the site, will appear in the browser address bar. To learn more about setting a primary domain, please see our documentation.

    You need to set it as your primary domain.

    If you still run into a redirect loop, please note that when a domain is registered or altered, there is a process called propagation, where information about the domain name is passed to internet service providers all over the world. This process can take up to 72 hours (though usually much less). During that time, you may also receive a warning message in your browser about “redirect errors”. Unfortunately, we have no control over this as it all depends on how often your internet service provider updates their records. Please rest assured that everything is proceeding normally with your domain.


    Thank you very much. If this is common, perhaps a warning about this should be in the articles for domain mapping? I’m thinking here and here.



    It’s actually mentioned during the purchase, but I’ll see if we can get that to be clearer.


    That would be great. I’m sure I’m not alone in only reading documentation carefully after things start going wrong :)
