Thanks for filling out the pre-launch info questionnaire. Please read the following Pre-Launch Checklist below so you know exactly what to expect from the launch process. Feel free to call or email us with any questions!
What To Expect:
- Propagation: When we launch your website we are changing the destination IP address of your domain name. DNS (or Domain Name System) is the Internet’s equivalent of a phone book. It maintains a directory of domain names and their corresponding IP addresses. There are many DNS servers spread out all over the world to speed up the domain-to-IP lookup process. When we launch your site and update your DNS the changes must be updated on each DNS server before customers using that DNS server can reach your website. Depending on how often a particular DNS server updates records, it can take 2-24 hours before your new site is available on that network.
- Testing: Once we launch your website our team will test the email forms and payment gateways throughout your website to be sure your emails and orders are processing without error. Depending on your internal email settings, your emails could, for example, get caught in your spam filter. We work with you to ensure a smooth email and payment processing launch.
Training: Once we launch the website our team will reach out to you to schedule your various WordPress and Google Analytic training sessions.
