you’re at the point where you’ve done all your planning, created your website and you think you’re ready… Make sure you don’t throw away all your hard work when launching your website

1: How to set your website goal
   The first thing you need to do before anything else is to get yourself a domain name. A domain name is the name you want to give to your website. For example, the domain name of the website you're reading is "thesitewizard.com". To get a domain name, you have to pay an annual fee to a registrar for the right to use that name. Getting a name does not get you a website or anything like that. It's just a name. It's sort of like registering a business name in the brick-and-mortar world; having that business name does not mean that you also have the shop premises to go with the name

2. How to write your content.
   There’s no reason to launch your site if you have nothing to show but 1-2 posts. I’d suggest having 4-5 posts up live and 10+ in the holster, ready to post every few days after the launch. This will let people know you’re serious about the site and will also give you time to promote the site, chat it up with other people in your niche to get some exposure and to write more content.

3. Testing Your Website.
   Believe it or not starting a website requires a lot of testing.  This is a commonly overlooked factor that people fail to do until their users start contacting them because of accessibility issues.  In order to have a successful website you need to make sure that people can use your site easily.  This is the main ingredient that allows your site to be a successful one (along with excellent content).

4. Getting Your Site Noticed.
   So now that you are all excited on starting a website you need to pick a place to host it with.  Without web hosting your site would not be functional.  Web hosting is the server that pay for which all your files are going to live on.  However, there are hundreds if not thousands of hosting companies out there so it can be impossible to determine, which one is right for you, unless you have a little assistance

5. How to promote your website.
   This is a great way to build awareness for your site as well as build relationships with other bloggers in your niche. Another great result from this is that generally if you are commenting on other peoples blogs, they’re more eager to check your blog out and comment on yours. Now, imagine if 100 comments by you (on various blogs – 1 comment per blog) resulted in 100 comments on your launch posts. That will give instant credibility to new viewers who see 10+ comments on each post. (in theory – of course it’s pointless leaving comments on blogs if you’re not genuinely interested in the posts. It’s all about the conversations.
