I have an existing domain which is served by DH. I want to develop a new version of the site which will use Joomla! instead of static HTML pages. Some guidance would be appreciated - here is what I'm trying to accomplish:
Install Joomla! on DH so that the site will not be visible to search engines until I want it to be.
Access the site for development purposes using a url that can't be discovered by search engines.
After development is complete, switch the domain to serve up the Joomla! site.
I think domain mirroring might be involved, but I'm just not sure. I want to be able to develop the new site using Joomla! in parallel with the existing site so that the existing site continues as it is right now.
TIA for your help! Ernie
