I currently have a Yola site but am thinking about a redesign of the site using another template. Is there a way to build a dummy site and then switch to the live URL once the new site is built? Or are there other ideas? Don't want any downtime while I'm building the new site. Thx.

Hi Diane, 

Absolutely! Just select "add new site" from the top of your My Yola dashboard and start creating! You can publish to a free .yolasite subdomain to see how it will look live.

Once you are ready to publish to your custom domain you'll need to unpublish it from your old site and publish it to your new one!
