Should I build a website and only put the finished product online?

Question by jwes.no1: Should I build a website and only put the finished product online?
Is it best to create a website with notepad, offline, and then only get it hosted after I have finished?
Or should I start with it on the web?

I would put it on the web and have a password to access it. This way you can test it in a live atmosphere. If you are just testing it on your pc you may find that when you upload it you have some links that don’t work and that will drive people away. But the password access will let you test it and not let others access the unfinished parts.
