I create blog/CMS websites for clients based on open source CMS. I don't have the money (or the need) for a testing server as I develop the sites.
What I would like to do, is be able to completely develop the website on the root domain, so that when I go to the website address, ie www.example.com
, I can see the website in progress. Also, I'd like my client to be able to go there too.
However, besides myself and my client, I don't want anybody else to be able to see the construction. I'd like other users to be shown a 'under construction' page.
I have no idea how to go about this.
