The short answer, however you want! We can upload and launch your website onto a live environment, launch onto a dev server, send the files by mail or deploy to your GIT. However you want it.

What is the amends process?
We usually like all amends in one go, but we’re aware that you may have amends before you send to your client and then they may have amends. So we usually work to 2 sets of amends. We use Codebase to manage all amends.
