In this video i will show you how to Create a Staging Site for WordPress within cPanel. A staging site allows you to create a test environment of your live site which visitors will not see enabling you to perform updates and changes before launching them publicly. A staging site is a clone of your live website. It enables you to test any changes or major new features that you plan to implement in a secure environment.
Developers often use staging sites as a testing ground in order to prevent errors occurring on ‘live’ websites, thus avoiding the issues and/or downtime that might otherwise result. Staging sites can be set up using a variety of methods. One of the easiest ways is to simply do it through your web host (which we’ll describe in detail later), if it’s a service they offer. Once you have it set up, you can use it to freely test changes without impacting your live site.
