Any changes to WordPress are live and visible immediately. Screw up your CSS? Install an incompatible plugin that trashes your database? All live for your readers to see. Hope you had backup…
WP Engine has an exclusive feature called “staging.” Here’s how it works: Before you make a scary change to your blog, click the “snapshot” button. We make a complete copy of your blog and set it up in a separate, safe area. You can play with anything you want; nothing’s live. Only when you’re ready to make it live do you touch your main site.
Peace of mind at no additional charge.
