Making a site live
Whilst you are building a site, the URL is likely to be:
- http://www.silva-sandbox.ucl.ac.uk/nameofyoursite or occasionally:
When we make the site 'live', we will 'migrate' the site to a different instance and then do a rewrite resulting in the word 'silva' being removed from the URL for you, but you need to do the following:
- Do NOT publicise the URL until the site is live!
- Let us know the date you would like the site to be live by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org at least 5 working days in advance - we cannot make sites
live on Fridays or the week immediately before the Xmas or Easter break
as we may not have enough resources to help in case there is a problem
with the new site.
- We will check the site and may get back to you with suggestions for improvements to the site. These are often related to usability and accessibility.
- You will get a reply, stating that the request has been sent off and that you will receive an email when the site is 'live'.
- Check all the links on your site and ensure you are completely happy with the site before announcing it 'to the world'.
- Email email@example.com to ask if we can add the site to our Search Engine Funnelback so that it appears high in the search when looking for it on the UCL website.
