Creating a safe testing environment (with domain?)

  • Hi there,

    I am looking at moving over my blog from WP.com to self-hosted via WP.org (with Dreamhost).

    Current URL: http://wholesomecook.wordpress.com
    Domain via GoDaddy: http://www.wholesome-cook.com (redirected to wp.com; expires August 2012)

    Ideally, I’d like to:
    – have no downtime,
    – transfer the domain name from Go Daddy to Dreamhost and set it up as my primary domain for self hosted, while:
    + I test 2 themes for the purpose of the wp.org blog;
    + both the wc.wp.com and w-c.com domains are pointing to the old blog on wp.com

    Is that possible? Can I set up a TEST.com domain and then change it to wholesome-cook.com when I’m ready? How can I create a safe testing environment?

    I’d like to have it mostly worked out before I import my WC blog’s content over.

    Thanks for any help offered, I hope it’s not too confusing.
