Transferring sites, should I create droplet with temporary or main domain?
I’m currently planning on completely redoing my site.
At the moment it’s a Wordpress site being hosted with another provider but I would like to set up a Ghost site with DigitalOcean.
Whilst I’m in the process of setting up the Ghost site, I’m planning on using a temporary domain
temp-domain.com so that it can be accessed easily by other users whilst being configured.
However, I noticed that when you configure the site it asks you for the domain and wondered whether I should put in current-domain.com or temp-domain.com as I’m unsure as to what this is used for and how easy it is to change.
Is this domain used for configuring the SSL certificate? Is is easy to change once set?
Any ideas as to what I should do?
