I currently have a site hosted by a different company and I wanted to domain map the WordPress.com site to the host provider eventually.
However, I still have yet to make a WordPress.com site and I want to keep my current site up while working on the WordPress.com site as I don’t want the current site to be down while my clients are still going to the original site.
Would I be able to work on a temporary WordPress.com site and eventually add a domain (domain mapping) later and move all my work to the new WordPress.com site? Or will I have to domain map the WordPress.com site first and then start working on it from scratch? If I can move all my work from the temporary WordPress.com site to the new WordPress.com site how would I go about doing it?
Also, does anyone have any recommendations on how to keep my current site up while working on the new site in WordPress?
