i am re-designing a website which is hosted on a microsoft server with .aspx pages. i am planning on using wordpress for this .org site and also am moving it to another host with linux hosting.
i want to figure out the easiest way to do this with as little down-time as possible and am a bit baffled! i am thinking of getting a temporary .net domain to develop the site on within the new linux hosting and then when i am ready, transfer the .org site and then copy the files over.
Another option is developing on WAMP (which i have installed) - but my client would like to see the site as i am developing it - so i am thinking i am stuck with the above way.
Is this a good way of doing such a thing or will i regret it?! And if so, what exactly would i need to change within wordpress when i made the switch?
thanks for any feedback or suggestions
