Hi, I have a website currently hosted in Siteground and using Wordpress as the building platform. The domain and corporate mail is also registered under Siteground.
I would like to make the switch to Jekyll and Netlify, but keeping the Siteground domain and email. That’s why I built this one on Jekyll
What I did first was to change the Siteground domain servers to the ones provided by Netlify when I added the custom domain. There wasn’t any error when I did that, and it seemed that Netlify accepted the domain.
However, after an hour when I clicked in the custom domain, the old website (in Wordpress) still appearing online.
Does anyone know what should I do to make my new site appear under the Siteground domain, but hosted in Netlify?
Thanks so much!
When I visit
metaustralia.com.au the site is served by Netlify.
Note: DNS propagation isn’t instantaneous, taking anything up to a couple of days though usually much quicker.
Did you also migrate the email records to Netlify DNS as well
(I don’t see any)?

What is this topic about?
This topic covers copying your existing DNS records from your current DNS service to Netlify.
Netlify DNS is service which allows you to manage DNS records for domains using our web UI (even for domains registered elsewhere).
IMPORTANT: You must copy all required DNS records to the Managed DNS service before changing the domain’s name servers to the Managed DNS server to avoid possible interruption of services.

That’s a really common question! Netlify does not provide email service. But no worries! You can choose a service yourself, and then set up the DNS records required by that email provider at Netlify. Note that these instructions are primarily for folks who are using
Netlify’s DNS Hosting.
Any mail provider should work with our DNS hosting, from major ones like GSuite and Outlook to your own mail server. Some specific services customers have report…
@coelmay for your quick answer and advice!
The problem is that the old website is still appearing (see picture) and not the one I recently built that is shown here
Old website - Wordpress
Will it just take time or am I missing something?
Thanks in advance,
This is what I see
It is possible the old version is cached locally.
