A development site is a copy of your entire site for development and testing purposes. Technically speaking, it means logging into your host via FTP, creating a subdomain in your root folder and completely copying the site over. This way, whatever changes will first be made and tested on the development site before they are applied to the live website.
Numinix's strict policy is to perform any and all services on your dev site. From there, we can safely perform our work, execute quality assurance and follow up with you for your review and confirmation before we push everything on the dev site to the live site. We require written authorization in our ticketing system for customers who do not desire this service.
The service price of $49 applies only to customers who have cPanel or shell access. Customers who do NOT have cPanel or shell access are subject to an additional $75 charge due to the increase in time required to download and then re-upload the entire database. If you do not have cPanel, please select the appropriate option from the dropdown menu.
