I originally hosted my domain kaleighscruggs.com on Namecheap’s cpanel, and a few months ago made the switch to Netlify. I still host my email address with Namecheap, but I just realized I have a site blog.kaleighscruggs.com that’s in limbo. It’s a Wordpress site, it is backed up…but is there any way to ‘see’ it again? How do I point to this site? And where? I’m lost.
hey @kaleigh, welcome.
give this post a read through, it should have some tips on how you can accomplish what you are trying to do!
If not, please comment again and we’ll do some more digging.
hey @perry…I think that helps. So I just need to go to https://app.netlify.com/teams/klgh/dns/kaleighscruggs.com and add my subdomain there and figure out the address from my namecheap cpanel to add to it on the Netlify side?
Hi, @kaleigh, you are exactly correct. It is very possible that this record still exists in the now unused DNS configuration at namecheap. If so, the most direct solution (that I can think of) is to find that now unused DNS record, note the details, and then make a duplicate DNS record at Netlify.
If you do this, I recommend looking through all of the previous DNS records to see if there are others that might also benefit from being copied to Netlify DNS. We have a “common issue” type topic about this here also:
If there are other questions, we’re happy to answer.
sure thing! glad its working now
