Start page

Why use this pattern

If your service is in public beta or live, you must have a reference page hosted on

Do not use a domain name other than

On that reference page will be a link to the start page of your service.

How it works

Start pages include six main elements:

  1. The service name. A good service name helps people understand what your service does and whether they need to use it.
  2. A quick overview of what users can (and sometimes cannot) do with the service.
  3. A short introduction that lists things most users will need to know before they start. For example, how much it will cost or what identification they need to complete the transaction.
  4. A [Start a noun] call-to-action button. For example, Start a payment or Start a class 1 notice.
  5. A list of other ways to access your service.
  6. A data collection notice.
