I am a reseller.

I am looking to see if there is anyway for clients to publish using Front Page before the name servers update without using FTP because FrontPage users need all the help they can get :)

Scenario I would like to see.

Add new site in whm.

Client to Publish immediately before NS update to myhosting.com

User
1. Enters url as myhosting.com
2. Username (relating to their hosted site)
3. Password

Basically it is the same procedure used to access control panel before the site goes live.

Thanks

Max

We just explain to them how to edit their hosts file and point the site to the new IP so they can publish ASAP. We have them remove the entry after a week passes.

I am looking to do the same thing basically. I understand that I can have them just edit the hosts file, but I can't seem to get Front Page to work on the hosts file (I am assuming the hosts file is in the format of www.serverdomainname.com/~newuser).

Is this correct?

Thanks for any help you can offer.
