I need to temporarily host my newer wordpress website version to test it before updating the actual one. For that, I want to do it via my secondary domains and transfer the necessary info to my designer. How is it possible?

Thanks for checking in with us! The easiest way to do this is going to be cloning  your website using Softaculous. You can clone the site from one domain to another. If you do that, it will be an entirely separate site until you decide to switch it later!

As to giving your developer access, make sure that you change the Wordpress password of the administrator account(s) on the secondary site, so the login information cannot be used to access your old site. You may want to go ahead and create an FTP account that only has access to the new site's directory, in case your developer needs that type of access.

Please note, for your privacy I removed the secondary domain you listed. Hope that helps!
