Check If A Domain is Pointing to Your Server

This shortcode allows you to check if a domain is pointing to your server. This step is recommended before issuing an SSL certificate (with the siteadd-https or siteconverthttps shortcodes), as the domain’s DNS records must point to your server, in order to validate the domain ownership to the certificate issuer (Let’s Encrypt).

To run Nodalio shortcodes on your server, please follow this guide.

Shortcode usage format:

  • sudo nodalio sitedomain-verify domain.com

Shortcode reference:

  • Domain.com – your site’s existing or future domain/subdomain.
