Site Launch

Ready to launch your site?

Let us know in advance (ideally 2 weeks) prior to when you’d like to launch the site. If you need the site to be up urgently, let us know when we’re onboarding you onto isomer or as soon as possible so we can prepare in advance.

Sites are typically launched along with SSL cert and there are two different kinds of SSL cert. The first one which we have recently started using and recommending is LetsEncrypt SSL cert, totally free and renew automatically which allows agencies to have an easier time setting up for site launch.

The second way is to make use of custom SSL cert which agency will purchase on their own separately. Do note that this method require yearly renewal of SSL cert and it is typically more expensive.

Site launch with LetsEncrypt SSL cert

Isomer is now able to support the provisioning of SSL certs for free that renew automatically and managed by the team. These are issued by Let's Encrypt, a non-profit certificate authority, through two avenues:

  1. KeyCDN, for domains such as "www.example.gov.sg" and;

  2. Certbot, a free and open-source helper application that automatically obtains and installs certificates into NGINX for "example.gov.sg"

We highly recommend newly onboarded agency sites to make use of the service. If you wish to have your site launch with LetsEncrypt SSL cert, please click on this form link.

Once you have filled up the form, your site will go live within the next 30 minutes. Only submit the form when your site is ready to go live.

If not, you may refer to the next section with instructions on how to launch your site with custom SSL cert.

Site launch with custom SSL cert

Step 1.

We’ll generate a CSR for your to purchase your own SSL cert and provide your CNAME and A-record for you to update your DNS records on the domain you’ve purchased.

We’ve recently launched our free SSL cert provisioning/renewal service, if you’d like to explore that option, let us know!

Step 2.

Send us your SSL cert and we’ll install in on our CDN (this step could be skipped if you’re using our free SSL cert)

Step 3.

Make the necessary updates on your DNS records. We will require you to create 2 records:

  1. CNAME: will point to our CDN which will serve your content

  2. A-record: will point to our redirection server which does redirecting of content from http -> https and non-www to www.

Step 4.

Isomer team will update our CDN and in 15 mins, your site will be live!

The time taken for Step 4 may be longer (up to 1hr) if you're using IsomerSSL as it will take some time for verification of domain behind the scenes.
