1) Depending on what plan you, some of the Managed WordPress plans include a specific Staging Site (Deluxe and Higher)


2) my instructions were for if you wanted to do dev.YOURDOMAIN.com instead of the ###.###.myftpupload.com that you would go to attach domain and do external / subdomain and then you can attach that domain - and then later on attach the actual domain - note: remove the dev domain first
