Setting up on a test domain first?

I did a search and didnt find the specific answer I was looking for but I would like to know if I can set up the cs-cart on a test domain first, do my mods, add the new theme and then move it all to my intended domain? (Pro version is only allowed for 1 storefront, so if I register the test domain does that mean I cant them move it?) or do I use the “trial” site for all my dev and then upgrade that?

My site is currently running and I do not want to disrupt the wordpress based site until I am 100% ready to move to the CS cart based site!



Can't you just point the new domain at your site.

( ie edit the name servers )

Only snag is if you have SSL Certificate installed.
