A list of common tasks to do after publishing a Website.


I’ve created an amazing website, buyed a domain and purchased a web hosting service, what’s next?

This is a check list of common resources I am constantly needing after (or before) launching a website, like setting up a CDN, cache, several optimizations, analytics, etc.

Check them up to review your website needs.



  • Set up Google Search Console (former Webmaster Tools)
    • Add HTTPS, WWW and non-WWW versions and select the preferred one
    • Submit Sitemap.xml to Search Console
  • Monitor website’s uptime
  • Google’s PageSpeed Insights

    Page Speed Insights measures the performance of a page for mobile devices and desktop devices. It fetches the url twice, once with a mobile user-agent, and once with a desktop-user agent.

  • Set up Cloudflare
    • CDN
    • Enable HTTPS Page Rules
    • Static files compression and minification (especially CSS and JS)
