    I'm trying to test my new domain setups with skeleton file transfers...but how do I access the domain if there is not yet a "domain name" pointed to the account. I've tried using the "http://ip address/~user_name" as the url address, but it doesn't work. I need to give users access before the domain points to the nameserver...what do I use?...I'm sure this is a newbie question, but ...Well...I'm a newbie...:)

    Thanks

    in whm go to tweak security->

    mod_userdir Tweak
    Apache's mod_userdir allows users to view their sites by entering a tilde(~) and their username as the uri on a specific host. For example http://test.cpanel.net/~fred will bring up the user fred's domain. The disadvantage of this feature is that any bandwidth usage used by this site will be put on the domain it is accessed under (in this case test.cpanel.net). mod_userdir protection prevents this from happening. You may however want to disable it on specific virtual hosts (generally shared ssl hosts.)

    make sure and include a closing '/' or it will not work.

    example http:/test.cpanel.net(or ip address)/~fred/
