    Hi, I just got my dedicated server with WHM/cPanel and one of the first things I want to do is take one of my dedicated IPs and set up a space on the server for sandboxing/testing/development etc... However I don't have a domain name to attach to this. I can just use the IP to get to it and that's fine by me. However WHM doesn't let me create a new account without using a domain.

    So how can I create web space to use with my IP and not have a domain name attached to it?

    Thanks!

    Every account must have a domain. There is no requirement, however, that the domain actually resolve to the server. You can make up a dummy domain name to use as a placeholder and use that to create the account.
