Bringing your new website live

Once all the text of a website is translated, the last step is to bring it alive, making it available on a pretty domain, other than the automatically generated one, such as www.easyling.com.hu-hu.fa7az80e.app.easyling.com

You can go for registering real top level local domains for every country (such as easyling.hu, easyling.pl, easyling.co.uk), or you can use only one, and assign sub-domains to each language version (e.g. hu.easyling.com, pl.easyling.com). One way or the other, you have to register your domain with Google Apps (it’s free), just go to http://www.google.com/a/cpanel/standard/new

Finally, you’ll have to login to Easyling, and assign the same address to your translation project. To make it really easy, here’s a short video on the entire process.
