    Hi

    Is there a way, and if so, what is the easiest and cheapest way to keep my V1 site up and running whilst in the background I try and build a new site using V2. Something like a development site, but as I am not a techie, I have no idea how to do this or where to look.

    Cheers
    Kerrin

    Are you … trying to avoid buying another domain?
    Usually, if you have CPanel type hosting, you can add another site without additional cost. It isn’t the best solution. Better is to get another temporary hosting account for build out of the GDV2 site, but, in either case you should be able to use a subdomain (free) and point it at the new/other staging site like stage.mysite.com

    Does that answer your question?

    OK!
    Talk with the host and see what they do. You can tell them you need a ‘staging site’, that might be a place to start, but even better if you can say you need a ‘fully functional copy of the site’ (just in case they have some limitations on staging sites).
