The following page appears on your domain or subdomain when the page does not publish to the web server correctly:
Review the following instructions on how to publish to your domain name:
I just published, but my domain isn’t loading the site yet
Double-check to make sure you have assigned the domain or subdomain to your page on the Pages menu. When you edit a Remixer page, this section displays in the left pane.
DNS changes are required if you are publishing to your domain or subdomain for the first time.
