Your basically saying, through local hosting then ftping is faster than changing from real domain?

I've come across web development companies that look at me as if I'm insane. One suggested my method was malware-like? (Some people don't know their a$$ from their elbow, it seems, when it comes to DNS, and that includes the localhost DNS.)
Your saying making site on your computer is not good anymore as to making site online through CMS?
How come too many people are suggesting the opposite? hmmm?

thx again ~

I haven't been able to make a site like that for years now
