wordpress install effect on live site pre-migration

Asked by:

If I install wordpress as instructed by "Installing WordPress on your Temporary URL" article, will this disrupt the content of my current website, which is hosted elsewhere? It is not built on wordpress at its current hosting location, if that makes a difference. (I am re-developing using wordpress then moving the hosting over to hub.) I just don't want the live site to disappear!

Thanks very much,

Hello Amy,

Since the domain name is pointing to the other server at the moment, nothing you do on our servers will affect the live site. You can use the temp URL to set up your site and when you are ready for it to become your current site, simply point the domain name to our namservers. That is when the old site will no longer display on the web.

Best Regards,
Scott M
