    Hallo Cpanel Team,

    I bought a server from hetzner with cpanel. I have no a domain name and i want to open the website using the IP address.

    When I use https protocol the webpage(index.php) opens as an 94.3x.xxx.xxx/index.php

    But when I use http protocol it redirects to 94.3x.xxx.xxx/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

    Can someone please support and tell me why this happens and how can fix it?

    Hello @Apogr,

    I recommend modifying the hosts file on your workstation to access the domain name directly in your web browser before it's purchased:

    How to Modify your hosts File - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Otherwise, you'll need to ensure the domain name is assigned it's own dedicated IP address and also ensure that IP address isn't configured as a shared IP address on the server.

    Thank you.
