You were asking, I think, about using a development server? The quick and
dirty method for a small developer is to simply create a subdirectory for
the client on your own website, do the development there, and don't transfer
the code to their server until it's paid for (and working.) There are loads
of more refined ways to do this as well.

The quick and dirty requires thought about paths, and a handful of other
things. Forethought and simple search/replace scripting can make that

I've rarely run into a site complex enough that this became challenging.
