    Default Wordpress Question

    I have a client that owns their own domain and it's currently pointing to a WIX free site.
    I have client set up on my WHM & Cpanel going to run wordpress. DNS is not heading this way till I get site up and running.
    Question, how can can I access the site and prep without the dns resolving here to the cpanel


    http://cpanelxx.gzo.com/~usernane/ho...x/public_html/ (this doesn't work)

    Any tips that might help resolve or do I need to do some fancy dns crazy stuff

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Gary

    You can preview any site via http://cpanelxx.gzo.com/~username/ but if the script is not configured to function via the preview URL it may not display or function properly. Instead I would recommend modifying your local computer's hosts file to point the domain to the IP address listed for the account in your WHM. This will make it appear on your computer as if the DNS was already changed.
