How to setup a staging site?

I am new to Digital Ocean. Basically I want to setup a staging site so I can make some larger edits. I am wondering if I create a snapshot and spin up a new droplet will it share the same database as the original droplet? It will provide me with a new IP but can I point a sub domain to the new droplet? And how can I migrate the two sites once I am done with my updates?

Thank you.

  • This would require more info, do you want to run all of this in a multi-server setup or just in a single server?

If you create them in the same region, you can also connect them over private networking.
