Not sure what the person above me is trying to tell you…

I would create a subdomain. Something like dev.yourdomain.com. So you’ll be working in a subfolder called ‘dev’. Once the site is ready to go, you’ll move all of your files into the root folder and then use a super useful plugin called Velvet Blues Update URLs to change all of the URLs to the proper domain (without the ‘dev’ in it). This will take care of all links (including links to your media).
