The day is finally here! It's time to launch. Here's what you need to know:

  1. Make sure you have your hosting services ready to go.
  2. Have the login credentials for your domain name registrar or DNS manager.
  3. Getting your website "live" on your domain name isn't always instant. It can take up to 24 hours to roll out across the world, but usually much faster.
  4. Make sure your web development company is available for support for any last second launch day issues.
  5. If your site processes credit cards or sensitive information like social security numbers, you'll need an SSL certificate to encrypt the transactions.
  6. Make sure placeholder content and test users are removed.
