[resolved] Can I create a wordpress site without buying a new URL (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I already have a wordpress site on my hosting package. However, I'd like to develop my wordpress skills by creating another website just to learn. Am I able to do this without buying a new URL as it won't be a real website, just a dummy one to try things out on. Can I build a wordpress website on my computer for example. Many thanks in advance, Pete

    creating another website

    depends on your hosting plan; many hosters allow numerous sub-domains like subdomain.yoursite.com

    Can I build a wordpress website on my computer for example
