    Hello. I signed up for Stablehost web hosting today for my father's website, which is already live utilizing another web hosting company, My Web Host. My father has asked me to recreate his site from scratch utilizing Word Press. We decided that we would like to change web host companies for the new site, which is why I signed up with Stablehost. The problem I am having is that I do not want to input Stablehost's DNS addresses into my domain registrar account until I have the new site ready to go live. Otherwise, it is my understanding, I would be overwriting the current page. I have been told to create a subdomain and use that domain for viewing and creating the new site, but when I do that the page is not found. I am assuming that this is because I haven't linked my domain registrar to the new web host, but as I said I want to make sure I'm not deleting/overwriting the current page in use. I'm not sure how to move forward. Do I have to utilize the old web host company and create a subdomain there to install Word Press and create the new site and then change to Stablehost only after I have completed the new site? Or do I have another option? FYI the current website that is live was not created with Word Press.

    Thank you for your assistance.
