I just purchased x theme. I read a post before buying that i could upload the theme to a test domain. I have a parked domain or can set up sub domain. Just want to clarify that i can set entire site up on test domain and publish to check and work with site. Totally new to wordpress but use rapid weaver now so just the dashboard alone is completely new. Then when all is ready switch to the original domain from my hostgator dashboard and set site up there? After building the entire site is there a simple method to switching over to the original domain and have the entire site there? Hope that is not a confusing question, not use to a web based set up.

The proposed setup you mentioned should work :)

Thanks Dzinc and SamBerson, Have been using a parked domain and working well. The learning curve from Rapidweaver is pretty big. I have not scratched the surface yet. I do not know any coding. Rapidweaver developers have some css snippets to help in that area but not much. Any plug-ins that may have snippets for basics like margins, colors text resizing for headers etc in CSS. Thank you!
