    i want to completely rebuild my website whilist keeping my old one online?
    best way to do this?

    i was thinking:
    make sub-domain
    install wp and do everything on a brand new database
    when its ready backup my old site and then copy paste all new "subdomain" files into the original root domain

    That would work fine.If you get organic traffic then dont forget to build new pages in the same location so you dont lose your rankings

    Why not build the new site offline? On your local machine. And then backup and upload to the host.

    With wordpress you will have to work on your local machine and then upload the data, else to work online you will have to point the domain to your wordpress blank website which may not be great for a website if you have visitors on it as they will end up seeing your blank WP website.
