Create a staging site


Step 1 of the Get started with staging series.

Create a Managed WordPress staging site to test changes without affecting your live site.

Note: Staging sites are available on all Managed WordPress plans except Basic. If you have a Basic plan, you'll need to upgrade your plan.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. In your My Products page, next to Managed WordPress, select Manage All.
  3. For the website you want to create a staging site for, select Settings from the menu icon menu.
    select settings
  4. Under Staging Site, select Create.

It'll take a few minutes for us to create the staging site. We're provisioning a new instance with a clean WordPress install. In the next step, you'll pull the content from your production site into your new staging site.
