A staging environment serves as an intermediary phase between the development environment and the live production environment. With xCloud, you will get a staging environment with temporary domains to make your site live with every site creation method available.
To reach to staging environment, create a site first by following this documentation. Once your server is connected, you can create a site from the xCloud Dashboard or Site List by clicking on the button “New Site”.
Staging Environment For Your Site In xCloud #
By following the below simple steps, you can easily have your site’s staging environment in xCloud. xCloud offers a simple yet intuitive dashboard for the staging environment from where you can control and set everything before taking your site live. Let’s see how it works:
Step 1: Choose Your Site & Add Information #
After connecting your site to the server, we will be creating a fresh WordPress site here. So choose the “Install New WordPress Website” option as shown below.
Step 2: Install Your Site Into Staging Server #
Instead of going live, you need to choose Staging Environment in this section as shown below. Your new WordPress site will go into a staging environment before sending it to live.
Click on ‘More Advanced Settings’ to expand all the information. Fill in all the information before clicking on ‘Next.’
Here you go. Within a few minutes, your site will be in a Staging Environment & you’ll be able to manage everything on your site from the xCloud dashboard.
Get Your Site’s Staging Environment In Work #
Here is the outcome of your site’s staging environment below. xCloud provides this staging environment to do all the development to your site with a temporary domain.
When you are ready with everything on your site, simply select the GO LIVE option and add your own domain to make the site available to your user/visitor.
