Hello, I am a beginner to WordPress website development and I have a question regarding theme activation. I’m planning on purchasing a theme from Themeforest and using it on a WordPress website that I’m creating for a client (general static website). However, I don’t have access to their domain and their hosters yet, so I’m planning on creating hosting the website locally and developing it until the I get access to their domain and then upload the locally created website there. I’m wondering how this affects when using the purchased theme.
I haven’t purchased the theme yet, so I don’t know how the activation exactly works, but to my knowledge the theme asks to be activated when you install it through the dashboard. So if I installed it and activated it while developing it locally, will the activation be disabled once I host in on the proper domain? What is the proper method for developing locally with a paid theme?
