I’m new to this so bear with me. I have a domain and site hosted by GoDaddy and I want to leave them. My plan is to re-create my site on WP hosted by DH. I have signed up for DH hosting and have downloaded the WP software to my PC.
I’m going through the steps to upload the files and I have the FileZilla software. I haven’t transfered my Domain to DH because I can’t have any down time on my site while I work here to get it set up. In reading through the forums here I found instructions for setting up a mirror site that I assume I use to create my website on first, then when I’m satisfied that it’s ready to go live I transfer the hosting from GoDaddy to DH and make the switch. I’m hoping I understand that correctly.
- Does this sound correct?
- If so, would I then upload the WP files through ftp to my mirror site?
- If so, exactly what files to I upload?
Thanks in advance for your help.
