Creating a Staging site

There are several options for making copies of your sites. This guide covers creating a staging copy of a live site. You can make changes to staging copies and then push those changes back to the live site.

We have other guides on creating a clone or staging site directly from a site backup or creating a clone of a live site.

The Staging option for a live site can be found within the site dashboard under Staging

Enter the required detail:

Please choose a name for your staging site? - Give the site a suitable name

Please choose a subdomain for your staging site? - this will appear at the start of your new sites URL

Would you like to restrict access to this clone? - choose either No - Make the staging site public or Yes - Require a password to view the site.

If you selected Yes - Require a password to view the site you'll need to follow our guide to create authorised users.

Click Create a staging site when you've entered all the details and your new staging site will be created.

Clone copies count towards your Onyx site limit, staging sites do not. You can have up to two staging sites per live site.

We have a separate guide on accessing and working with your staging sites.
