Test your Weebly site before publishing it to your live site.
Site staging allows you to make changes to your site without affecting your live site. It's a great option if you are redesigning or adding a new site feature. With staging, you can test the live version of the site without exposing your site visitors to an incomplete site version.
You can set up a staging site for Weebly on any Pair server that offers Weebly. To do so, follow these steps:
Step 1: Create a pairsite subdomain
The first step is to set up a pairsite subdomain. The pairsite subdomain is a temporary domain on which we'll install and edit your Weebly site. Once you are finished making site changes, you will move your site to your main domain.

Adding a new Weebly installation on the pairsite subdomain creates a clean slate for you to make changes.

It's time to make your changes! Whether you're redesigning your site, adding a new feature, or just experimenting, you can alter your website freely on this subdomain.

And don't worry -- As long as you installed Weebly on the pairsite, none of these changes will show up on your live site.
To see your progress, you can publish your pairsite Weebly site, then visit the pairsite subdomain address from your browser.
