  1. Hey if you are impatient to wait till domain propagates. you can test it on your local machine by changing the hosts file C:WindowsSystem32Driversetc  . Just add ip and your domainname. What happens is local host file is searched for ip resolution first so your domain will point to the ip u have specified in the hosts file.

Keep in mind, this will work only when DNS is completely propagated as author discussed in the video.
