without any add on create development, staging environment

I am not sure if I am doing right or not. I want to create development, staging and production environment for my repository.

We got different hosting server for staging and live.

I am thinking to create branch staging and development branch from master.

So i can clone only staging branch to my staging server.

I am thinking to keep these two branch permently. 

Is this right? Also how feature branch will work in this case.

Hope to hear from anyone soon.

Hi Ashish, there are different types of workflows; having a branch for each environment is common but there are some risks (it can originate conflicts between the different branches). In many cases, it's better to have just one branch in all of them, as you should never have commits in production that are not in staging. The history should be linear, so when you have a change in production, you know this change is present in all the previous environments.

You can read more information about different types of workflows (including theFeature Branch workflow) at Comparing workflows.

There's also a discussion about that at Git with development staging and production branches, it might interest you.

Hope that helps!
