Migrate Away: Instructions for specific domain providers

PageSpeed Service was turned off on August 3rd, 2015. Please see Turndown Information for PageSpeed Service.

This page contains provider-specific instructions for changing your DNS to point away from PageSpeed Service. This is a critical step in migrating away.

Before you start, you will need to know your site's reference domain. Instructions for finding it are on the migrating away page.

When you log into your DNS hosting provider, you will need to know your site's DNS Zone and hostname. The hostname is the first "word" of your site's domain and the DNS zone is everything else. So for instance, if your site was www.example.org, your hostname would be www and your DNS zone would be example.org.

If you don't know who your DNS hosting provider is, try following these instructions. If we don't have instructions for your provider below, try searching your hosting provider's documentation or use your favorite search engine to find instructions. Please feel free to write to us if you need assistance or have feedback.

Once you have made these changes, they will take some time to propagate. The actual time will depend on the configured TTL, which should be visible in the console. Consider using the tool at www.whatsmydns.net to check your site's DNS records around the globe.
