Quick Tip: Develop using Subdomains
Here is a quick tip I recently learned that may be obvious to some, but I never really thought about it at the time. I was creating an application online and purchased a new domain, where I then created a folder appropriately named /beta/.
If I was to have started off with using a subdomain (beta.mydomain.com) then I wouldn’t have to change any paths as all relative paths would simply be root (/). This will clearly save you a good 5minutes of Find & Replace, but then you do not have to worry about testing and making sure you managed to change them all!
