I am creating a website for my 1st client and I am wondering what the best method to uploading it for their viewing is. The site is not ready to be fully uploaded so I can't load it to the url. How else can you send it somewhere for the client to view? Any help would be greatly apprecaited!
You could possibly check with your hosting company. The one I use (Hostway.com) always offers me a temporary server location with a very specific url address for the initial upload and testing period etc.
Then when I'm ready, I change my DW server settings to point to the real web address.
I hope this helps,.Frank B.
Many developers create a test directory for the clients on their own server.
The site is not ready to be fully uploaded so I can't load it to the url.
You can if you password protect the root directory or use a robots noindex Meta tag.
