Our Go Live service involves taking a development website on WP Engine into full production mode.
If OM4 is developing your website for you, this service is almost certainly included in your Offer. OM4 partners may complete all these steps themselves, or engage OM4 to provide the service.
The Go Live service takes place after:
- the developer has developed a website on a WP Engine development site (e.g. newsite.wpengine.com)
- the order form below (and up front payment) is received by OM4.
- OM4 reviews and confirms the go live service is scheduled for a particular date.
OM4’s go live service consists of the following:
|Website Settings Check||We check common website settings for accuracy. This includes email addresses (configured for the website administrator and the website contact forms), timezone and privacy settings.|
|WordPress Users||We create user accounts for each required WordPress user, set first name, surname and preferred name. We update Page and Post owners to the primary user account for the website.|
|WordPress SEO/Robots||We will activate and configure the WordPress SEO plugin, and optionally activate an XML sitemap.|
|DNS Update||We will log in to your existing DNS hosting service and update the DNS records to point to the WP Engine web hosting service, and configure the WordPress website and WP Engine to use the production domain.|
|Google Analytics Setup||If requested, we will configure a new Google Analytics account for the website and install the tracking code.|
|Redirects||If the new website is going live on an existing domain, we will configure your nominated 301 redirects for pages currently indexed by Google, redirecting them to the required pages in the new website. Up to 20 redirects are included in the standard service.|
|Link Check||Once the site has gone live we will conduct a check for broken links and provide you with a report so you can fix them.|
