Moving Wordpress .dev site from Desktop Server


Recommended Posts

Currently I have my organization website at a different host. I have been working on redoing the website with Wordpress using the Desktop Server and want to use your servers to host the Wordpress site.


I don't want to go live immediately when I move WP to your servers. Do I need to purchase a new domain for testing? If so, will I be able to change the testing domain site to our currently owned site domain when I am ready to dump the older version of our website?

Thanks for your reply linkiepoo! I realized that I do have a domain from a business I had closed a few years ago. Once I understood what subdomain was, I realized that I can use it without any confusion from old customers. I can move the Wordpress site into subdomain, test it and when ready - use the domain I want! I am learning as I go along - never used a subdomain before!
