    Hi Aldi, sorry for not getting back to you until now. But to find out if it is working you can do one of two things. You can access the site by IP address by replacing the "www.domain.com" portion of your url with the IP address of your site. If you get your website and it does not redirect you to the http://www.domain.com version of the URL then you know it is working. Logging into the admin portal with the IP address url is your best proof that it's really working.

    The other option is to view the source of your webpage. If you see URL's starting with "/" like this:

    ....
        <a href="/home">Home</a>
        ...

    Then you know it's working. There are some caveats to the design in that not all URL's will start with a "/", so try the first option first :D

    Hope that helps, please let me know if you have any further questions. You won't have to wait 2 months for my next response ;)

    Thanks,
    Marcus
