How does Staging work on WordPress hosting

What is a Staging Site?

A staging site, to put it simply, is a duplicate or a clone of your live website. Since it is often offline or inaccessible to the public, it is a great option to use to test out scripts, plugins, and themes before pushing them live on your actual site. Whatever modifications you make on your staging site will not affect your original WordPress site and its settings. With that said, your visitors would not experience any interruptions while you are working on developing your website. Moreover, using a staging site reduces the risk of experiencing downtime.
