To start a production-ready Django project, you should first install Django by running "pip install Django" in your command line.
Then, create a new Django project using the command "django-admin startproject projectname". This will create a new directory with the same name as your project, which contains the basic file structure for a Django project.
Next, navigate into the project directory and create a new Django app using the command "python manage.py startapp appname". This will create a new directory with the same name as your app, which contains the basic file structure for a Django app.
After that, you should configure your database settings in the project's settings.py file. You should also set up a virtual environment and install any necessary dependencies.
Then you can use "python manage.py runserver" command to run the development server and test your app.
To make the app production ready you should consider using production-ready web server like Apache or Nginx and also use a production-ready database like PostgreSQL or MySQL.
Also, use proper security measures like using HTTPS, and setting proper permissions to your files and directories.
Finally, test your app thoroughly before deploying it to production.
