Have you purchased a domain name and web hosting?  Are you using content information that belongs to someone else?  Have you checked to make sure the hosting you will use will support all of the features of your web site?

One thing you may want to consider is checking to see how it appears on different browsers. Take into consideration that you may get viewers who are using older browsers (Like IE7 for example) that it may not display correctly on. Check how it looks in Chrome, Firefox, etc.

What makes you think you need to register with any organizations?  Are you talking about trade?  Are you a business that hires people? or pays freelancers?

I wouldn't worry about bandwidth to start.  But it is hard to answer this without knowing everything about your site.  If have a database? that is heavily relied on for content?  or is it static?

I really think your questions are too general.  You have a new site, unless you are doing something fantastic with hype and PR/Advertising, there is nothing to break.  You will have very little traffic.  If your site is part of something huge like TMZ is owned by CBS, then you do need to be more prepared.  Otherwise, it is normal for first time site owners not to fully understand all that goes into preparing for traffic or over thinking and over estimating the traffic they will get right away.

Sounds like you are ready.  My only recommendation is to join Google's Webmaster Tools and upload a sitemap (after you're live) so Google knows you're there.  http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/¿
