Should I add a site only once it's connected to its domain name?

I just started a new website hosted with WP Engine, and it's called I plan to prepare it for launch under that URL and only connect it to it's real name when it's ready (2nd week of Dec target). I installed the WPMU dashboard plugin, but should I already register it with WPMU when it's not connected to the real URL yet?

    Hi Christoffel ,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    If I understood well, for the HUB this doesn't matter, when you install WPMUDEV Dashboard plugin in a site, it should be detected automatically and added to the "My Websites" section. The same thing when you remove WPMUDEV Dashboard plugin or delete the site, it will be removed from that section too.

    Also, If I am not missing something, I think you should add WPMUDEV Dashboard plugin in your "dev" site, to enjoy the one-click plugins and themes installation and also from tools like "Support Access" in case you have issues and we need to give a look.

    Cheers, Luís
