How To
I currently have a basic, 3-page website created with Premium Website Builder. It was built with the intention of being a "place-holder" until I was ready to attempt something more elaborate.

Now, I know what I want to do, and I want to do it over a period of time (my learning curve) with Wordpress. How do I maintain my current PWB website, and the capacity to update it, while at the same time creating, off-line, a new Wordpress version? I would like to keep the PWB website online until the new website is ready for prime-time, then make the switch.

Advice, pls?

Hello eightball,

Great question! We certainly understand keeping your Premium Website Builder site up until you are comfortable and happy with your WordPress site.

While you can build a website offline (using something like xampp or WAMP) when it comes time to move everything from the local computer to the server, it's not always an easy process.

I would suggest instead that you install WordPress into a subdomain or subdirectory and then when you're ready to "go live" with your WordPress site, either move WordPress to your site's document root or simply configure WordPress to run from a subdomain or subdirectory.

Please let us know if you have any questions or need further assistance.
