This guidebook describes the final steps of launching your application on VIP using a new set of tools that put you in control of your launch. We’re in an invitation-only beta period for this functionality, but if you haven’t heard from us and you’re interested then please talk to your Launch TAE.
A lot of setup will naturally be complete before you begin, and the launch tool will take care of the following:
- Ensuring you have a primary domain set up for your production environment
- Switching to the primary domain, taking care of any search and replace through content to ensure links and media references remain consistent
- Guiding you through any DNS change
- Automatically provisioning Let’s Encrypt TLS certificates, if you’re using these
This guide will take you through what you need to do to ensure you are setup for a smooth launch process, “Preparing for launch”, and then step you through using the launch tool to complete the steps outlined above, “Launching”.
