I want to create a WordPress.Org site in order to replace a clients existing website. They already have a domain and hosting through mydomain.com
I want to be able to completely build, edit and populate a wordpress.org website without taking down the existing site, and only take down the existing website when the wordpress version is ready to go live.
I know I need to buy hosting before I can have access to the wordpress CMS (in order to create, edit, populate) but I don't know how to do this without using the existing domain?
So, at the moment, I really don't know how I can begin working on this site without causing any interference to the existing site? I know I need to purchase WordPress hosting in order to receive access to a wordpress backend editor but how can I do that without risking any problems?
I appreciate your help and time in advance!
