Support » Installing WordPress » How to make a new site in the background?

  • Resolved OliverC


    Hello Everyone,

    I am a bit confused about how to go about doing something. I have a website which has been around 7 years. I want to replace the old site with a brand new one. The new site will be completely WordPress. I have access to a different host than the one is currently on. On this different host I would like to instal WordPress and create my new site. Then when its all nice and ready move the URL over to the new host and new WordPress install.

    Is this possible?

    When I am creating the new site do I need a domain name for the temp site? Or can I just use whatever IP Address is giving to me? How will this effect links and permalinks when I move the old URL over it?

    Thanks for any advice. I am a bit of a newbie when it comes to this topic so please explain in simple terms.

    Very much appreciated,
