Hi, my current website was built with sitebuilder. Now I'd like to use wordpress. Can I keep the original site in place while building a new site in wordpress? How do I do that? Thanks.

Yes, you can certainly build your WordPress site while keeping your current site in place. When you install the wordpress site, be sure to name a 'directory' on the install form. It has 'wp' there by default, so you can keep that there if you wish. Your wordpress site will then be found at where your current site will still be at

Kindest Regards,
