By on March 8th, 2019


A website staging environment is an environment which is commonly used for testing something on a website that exactly resembles the production environment. Everyone needs a staging environment to test the working of the website before going it into Live because managing the LIVE website is too risky. It may cause website downtime that results from plugin malfunctions, page crashes or broken code. In this case, we can use this duplicate site to perform testing and make changes in an environment which is completely invisible from the visitors. A WordPress staging site is an offline clone of your website. There is an easy method to clone your website by using a WordPress plugin WP Staging.
