Staging Server

Definition - What does Staging Server mean?

A staging server is a type of server that is used to test a software, website or service in a production-similar environment before being set live. It is part of a staging environment or staging site, where it serves as a temporary hosting and testing server for any new software or websites.

Techopedia explains Staging Server

A staging server primarily enables assembling, deploying and testing a software or website on a server instance similar to the production server. Typically, software or a website is deployed on the staging server from the development server or once is development is complete. A staging server helps to identify the software or website behavior, experience and performance as it will be visible on the production server. This helps software developers or QA staff in identifying and resolving any problem, bugs, performance, usability and other issues before the software or website is deployed on the production server.

The staging server can be a staging database server, staging website server and staging application server and more.
