Going Live

The process of "Going Live" involves activating your ShoutCMS website and pointing your domain at the appropriate IP address to make it publicly visible. Site activation does the following:

  • Releases your site to open (public) Internet access.
  • Activates email accounts if optional email services have been purchased.
  • Points your site from the temporary domain to your own domain.
  • Activates specific terms defined in the ShoutCMS Hosting Agreement.
  • Enables the shopping cart.

This section of the guide will help you prepare for site activation and walk you through the process of going live.
