What is required to launch an online dating site besides SkaDate dating software?

 

The three main steps required for launching a dating site with SkaDate Dating Software:

1. Choosing and buying a domain name.

The name should be easy to remember for site members, and also reflect the site concept. Having a keyword in the domain name is not a must, but can be an advantage.

2. Getting a hosting account (corresponding to SkaDate server requirements).

This is a crucial moment, because flawless website operation strongly depends on server characteristics. Any professional software (whether a game or a dating site platform) has certain system requirements to run properly, and operate at its full capacity. That is why it is required to check if the chosen hosting account is compatible with SkaDate. A hosting company should provide good customer support, guarantee continuous server uptime monitoring, and make site data backups. The list of companies that work best with SkaDate Lite can be found on the Recommended Hosting page.

Note that the chosen domain name needs to be ‘connected’ to the hosting account by updating the DNS before getting down to the software installation. This can be done by contacting the hosting provider and domain registrar for additional information, or referring to SkaDate support team for assistance.

3. Installing SkaDate.

SkaDate support team can perform a free installation of the dating script. If the chosen server meets all the necessary system requirements, the new dating site will be up and running within a day. Alternatively, the installation can be perform by a client if so desired. In this case, SkaDate support team will supply the client with all the necessary manuals and assistance. Once the website is up, it needs to be configured in the Admin Panel to correspond with the site runner’s vision and concept. After that, it is ready to welcome the new visitors.
