    Hi all,

    Is it possible to look at a website hosted on my Cpanel server before the DNS has propergated over? Just to make sure its working correctly before I change the DNS.

    Thank you
    Andy

    Did you try http://<SERVER_IP>/~CPANELUSERNAME ?

    If you have "Apache mod_userdir Tweak" enabled then exclude "DefaultHost (nobody)".

    What you can do is park a subdomain (or another domain you own) on top of the account and point that (sub)domain to the server.
    This is more secure then using http://<SERVER_IP>/~CPANELUSERNAME and gives less problems with url's when testing things.
