How to Build a Website Using a Subdomain and WordPress (Freelance Web Design)

In this video I will show you how to create a subdomain as a staging site. This is useful for freelance web designers or when working at an agency. The purpose of using a subdomain is that you can build out a website on a live URL to show clients progress on their site without having to take down their existing website or put up an “Under Construction” page. You will also retain ownership of the site so in case you have any issues collecting payment you do not have to worry about the client already having the content you created.

In this video I will show you how to create the subdomain and install WordPress so you can start building your website!
