    i have a blog on typepad now. I want to design a new website on wordpress, (using the same url which I have registered with godaddy) but not launch it yet. Can I do that?

    You can set the site to Private the minute you register it and then work on it till it’s ready. Just switch to Public when you’re ready. That’s under Settings->Privacy on your dashboard.

    Yes, you can even do so without the paid Custom Design upgrade. There’s a free Preview. We always recommend people use that first and not buy the upgrade till they’re sure they can make the changes they want.

    Are you referring to a foree hosted wordpress.com blog?
    Are you referring to editing CSS?
    If so the answer is yes. Scroll down to “I’m not sure if the Custom Design upgrade is for me. Can I try before I buy?” here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions
