Can I preview my website before my domain resolves?

You may wish to upload your web site prior to name servers (DNS) change. You can do this by using the server’s hostname as the FTP hostname or the Server IP Address and you can preview your website using the following method below:

http://HOSTNAME/~USERNAME/

Where "HOSTNAME" is the hostname provided in your account activation email and "USERNAME" is your cPanel control panel username and which is also provided in your account activation email.

PLEASE NOTE: Some scripts and mod_rewrite rules will not function correctly until the name servers (DNS) fully propagates to our servers.
