Staging Sites

Quickly make copies of your websites so that you can make changes without affecting your live website.

Making changes to a live site poses a lot of risks. Whether you're updating a plugin or changing a few lines of code, even the slightest changes could leave your site completely inoperable. That's why staging is so important. Leave your live site up and running while you test changes in your staging environment, ensuring everything works the way it's supposed to before you push changes live.

    Any site on your plan that is not currently in production can be used as a staging environment.

Our unique approach to staging environments makes prototyping, testing, and refining production simple and effective. We allow as many staging environments as necessary depending on your hosting plan. A ten-site plan with five live sites gets five sites to use for staging and development. Need more staging environments? Simply use an empty slot on your dashboard. It's that easy.
