This will trigger a new Production Build for your site. When that Production Build completes, your site will be ready to view.

Default domain

You will receive a “default domain” for your site base: YOUR_SITE_PREFIX.gatsbyjs.io. This domain has HTTPS on by default. Visit the https://<default domain> URL to see your hosted site.
