With Elementor Hosting you can make use of the Elementor staging site feature. Editing a live website can be a bit like cooking a meal in front of a live audience. One wrong move, and you could end up with a mess. That’s where “Staging” comes in. It’s your behind-the-scenes kitchen where you can prep and taste-test before serving up to your guests.

If you want to start again, just set up the staging site as you did initially.
