    Hi,

    Im planning to create a Development area for my Web Server so I do not need to link it to a Domain. Something like http://188.64.185.236/test/.

    How do i actually achieve that ?? as creating an account requires it to enter a domain.

    Sorry im still new at using Cpanel/WHM

    Thank You.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately you must enter a domain name to be used on a new cPanel account before the account can be created. For testing and development purposes, I would try using something such as "dev.domain.com" where domain.com is the domain you will eventually be using. Enter a username and password to go with it.

    After WHM informs you the account has been created, you can then access the temporary URL for the new account by going to http://ip.add.re.ss/~username (please remember to keep the tilde in the URL, and replace 'username' with the correct username).

    Howdy,

    If you had an IP to dedicate you could use ip/folder.

    Thanks!
