Launching Your Site
Hurrah, development is finished and it's time to launch your site. Hold your horses though, there are a few things we need you to do.
Before we can launch your site, there are some steps we need you to help us with:
- Decide on a Craft License: a “Pro” license will give you a better publishing experience as well as the ability to add multiple users. Here’s a quick comparison. If you think you need a Pro license, then follow our guide to purchasing it here.
- Share your DNS account with us: we need access to this to redirect traffic to your new sites as well as configure the server emails. Here’s a quick guide.
- Create a Digital Ocean hosting account & team: we need to set up a live, production server for your new site. We recommend using Digital Ocean. It’s reasonably priced (from $5/month), reliable and easy to use. Here’s the setup guide.
- Create a Mailgun account: even the most basic website needs to send emails. We recommend setting up a free Mailgun account to handle this. Here’s our walkthrough on doing this.
