How To Set Up A Staging Server In GoDaddy Managed WordPress: Data Driven Daily Tip 191

By: Paul Hickey, Founder and Lead Strategist

One of the many reasons I love WordPress is because regardless of your skill level, you can contribute, learn and contribute more.

Seriously, even if you’ve never updated a website before and don’t know the first thing about coding, you can learn to manage content.

Our team has trained hundreds of Administrative Assistants, non-technical Marketers, interns, VPs, IT personnel and even small business owners alike how to update all of the content and even SEO metadata on their WordPress websites.

We believe that you should have access to update all of the content on your own website, but we also know that it’s risky to hand away the “keys to the kingdom” so to speak to another person who could “mess things up.”

That’s why this tip “how to create a staging server on your GoDaddy Managed WordPress Account” is so useful. You can go in and clone your site, and give yourself basically a safe playground area to try things and see if they’ll work on production (your live site) the way you want them.

It’s super simple. Check out the video below.
