    I'd like to move my current website hosted by Hardhat over to WordPress using Bluehost. Is it possible for me to work on my new wordpress design with the same domain name in a privacy mode and keep my old site live until the new one is ready to go?

    If you want to move the website to a new host, you can simply edit the Windows host file while migrating the website.

    In the windows host file, found in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc you can point your domain to the IP of the new hosting provider. This will override the DNS (on your computer only) and you will be able to access your new site (under construction) using the same domain name.

    Thanks. I'll give that a try.
