Local Development Environment (LDE)

A local development environment (LDE), also called localhost, allows you to set up a server environment on your laptop/desktop to run a website or a web application instead of using the server environment provided by your hosting company. Since it’s not accessible to internet visitors, but only you, it allows you to customize and test anything you want without worrying about affecting any end-users or content editors working on the live website.
