    Hello,

    Most users think of Apache Mod_Userdir for these situations:

    Apache mod_userdir Tweak - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    However, as a reseller, you can't enable Mod_Userdir without intervention from your web hosting provider. That said, it's actually easier to simply configure a custom entry in the hosts file on your workstation to make the domain name resolve to the server:

    hosts (file) - Wikipedia

    Let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Thanks!
