Do a beta test

If possible, set up a beta test before going live. It's a simple matter to upload your design into a folder on the server and send the URL to your testers. Beta testing is especially useful when you've got a humongous, or a really, really, big, site. A huge site is hard to test fully. In fact, you'll be a candidate for a good hair‐coloring product if you tackle the task of testing a huge site by yourself.

In addition to testing the site for usability, beta testers can find any bugs that are lurking in your code. Identifying usability issues and other problems greatly enhances the chances of the site succeeding when it goes public. The test can also determine how real‐world users react to the site.
