Don’t wait until your website is ready to go live, but check occasionally to see what information some different online tools come up with. Type your URL in once and UITest’s will refer your URL to several tools to test accessibility, validate the website, test links, load time, performance and get WHOIS info. You can also see what your website looks like without color (design elements disappear) and what your website looks like in a search engine.
