Hello,
I want to create an cPanel account but currently, I have no domain. I use the ip of my website to connect to whm so, I can't associate an domain with my new cPanel account.
An idea?
Thanks

Please..

Hello,

As mentioned by @Chirag Aggarwal you can use a non-existent domain, though you would first need to enable "Allow unregistered domains" at WHM>>Server Configuration>>Tweak Settings.

Thanks!

I actually signed up to post something similar, but what I want to know is if I use a main domain that points to 127.0.0.1 - will this cause any problems? (other than expected)

I plan to use add-on domains only with the account and dont want them linked by autossl certificates to the main domain

Hi @Adam315

You shouldn't actually be able to point your domains to 127.0.0.1 it shouldn't be an assignable IP address on the system. If your main domain doesn't resolve it wouldn't be part of the SAN on the AutoSSL certificates so you wouldn't need to worry about that aspect.


Thanks!
