Migrating a WordPress site

Hi. I have a website on my domain, bluewaterprism.com hosted elsewhere. I have built my WP site that will replace it and be hosted here - it currently is on localhost (my computer at my desk). I think I can get it over to WHH but I do not want it public until I am sure all is well. I have not switched my nameservers yet - I was going to do that when I am sure it is working and then terminate service on the old host. How can I do this? Thanks.

Hello Jay,

Thank you for your question. Here is a link to our guide on migrating a Wordpress site to our servers.

Then, you can password protect your public_html folder. This allows you to access and test the site, without it being accessible to the public.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
