I'm redesigning a site that will eventually live at www.site.com. There is content there that i don't want to disturb until launch.
I will be installing some kind of new cms for the redesign. I'm just curious as to how I should go about working on this.
Should I create the subdomain at staging.site.com and then when I'm done, change the domain properties in the web panel to www.site.com and overwrite the old site? Will that even work?
It might, but I wonder if the cms will understand that the domain has changed. it might have "hooks" in it that point to the old domain.
