One of the great features of WP Engine hosting is their Go Live Checklist, a customer guide to launching a website. Useful for beginners and intermediate webmasters alike, this tool walks a customer through the required and recommended steps for building and launching a website.
The guide covers such topics as adding your domain, updating DNS records, ordering SSL certificates, adding content, selecting a theme as well as bonus section on plugins, SEO and caching.
The checklist displays for new WordPress installs 45 days after creation or 10 days after the traffic milestone is met.
WP Engine also has a great guide on Getting Started with WP Engine, useful for those new to the platform.
