On occasion, you may run across a Domain Warning message when using the 1-Click tool. This article provides steps to correct this.

If you received the error below, you can easily correct it!


Check the DNS for your domain.

1. You will need to make sure that your domain is pointing to your Grid. The easiest way to do this is to add the domain to your server in the AccountCenter, which creates a DNS zone file that will direct traffic for that domain to your server. Please see the following Community article for more information: How do I add a domain or subdomain to my server?

Once you've added the domain to your server, you can then point your domain's nameservers to Media Temple:
