Design Workflow

Introduction

LaunchPass is building you a website- 🥳 but to make it truly turnkey for you, you’ll likely want to choose your own domain name, check in on the build as it’s happening so you can request tweaks, and provide the final sign-off so that no one stops perfecting the site until your expectations have been exceeded!

What we need from you:

To start, fill out
Then, review the design mockup we send you
When you like what you see, set up your domain name (instructions on domain name setup are at the bottom of the page)
When you’re happy with the result, sign off on the project’s completion

Here’s the detailed plan our team will follow to ensure all tasks are completed quickly and to your liking. All that’s left to do is complete the discovery form and we’ll get going!

DNS Configuration

After acquiring a domain name, such as www.yoursite.com, it's essential to configure the DNS settings through your chosen domain registrar's dashboard. Domain registrars, including popular options like GoDaddy, IONOS, and Namecheap, generally have common DNS configuration settings, although their exact location within the registrar's dashboard may vary.

GoDaddy Example

Here is a workflow to set-up DNS records in GoDaddy:
Step 1: After logging in to your GoDaddy Account, go to MY PRODUCTS, and in the DOMAINS section, click on DNS ​

Step 2: Switch to the DNS tab ​

Step 3: 🚨 Take a screenshot of the all the settings table rows, before doing any changes. Then, delete all the existing A @ records and delete all the CNAME www records. (There might be more than one of those records) ​

Step 4: Then, we will add new A and WWW records that will make the domain point correctly to the new site we built. Click on Add new record ​

Step 5: Then, add two new A records as per the screenshot that will be sent to you. A sample of that process is attached below: ​

Step 6: Then, add a new CNAME www record as per the second section in the screenshot sent to you. A sample of that process is attached below: ​

Step 4: Please make a backup of the records (take a screenshot) before editing them.
Navigate to the Manage DNS records section, then search “www”. You may see one or more type CNAME, www records. Delete all of them. ​

Step 5: Then search “@”. You may see one or more type A, @ records. Delete all of them, do not delete AA, AAA, AAAA records. ​

Step 6: Now, that the old records are gone, we have to replace them with the ones you will receive from LaunchPass support team. The records will look like this: ​

Step 7: Let’s add the two A @ records as per the instructions screenshot sent to you. ​

Step 8: Let’s add the CNAME www record as per the instructions screenshot sent to you. ​
