    Here's the situation, tell me if I'm crazy.

    I've read through some forums and figured out that my provider probably has some Tweak Settings set such that I cannot park a domain name that is not legit.

    However, that's not exactly what I'm trying to do.

    Say I have a legit domain name myname.com

    I create an account for a new client and give it the name unresolved.com
    This client has not yet registered their domain name, but I'd like to give them access to their account so that they can get things up and running before the name even propogates.

    I try parking unresolved.myname.com onto the new account unresolved.com

    This should work! Even if there's a security risk parking unresolved names, the fact is, I just created an account with an unresolved name, who cares what I park on top of it as long as what I'm parking on top of it is legit.

    unresolved.myname.com would allow my client instant access to their site via my registered myname.com domain name.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions for how to accomplish instant access to a new account that does not yet have a propogated domain name. The sites I resell do not get their own IP address, so I cannot just have my user go to an IP address to begin preparations. I need another way.

    Thanks.
