    We are looking to build new WordPress websites for a few clients who already have a live site on another platform.

    What is the best way to start building that site without having to redirect their current domain?

    Should we build a canvas site using a subdomain, then migrate it over once we redirect their domain to go live?

    We tried setting up the new wp site with their current domain then just altered the host file to redirect so we could work on it, but that cause all kinds of problems with plugins not being able to verify the site.

    Thank you guys!
