Is there any way I can access my files/domains without actually typing in the domain name? The reason is, that I don't want to change my domain's dns yet because I wanna make sure it is working fine, but how can I access my files?
The usual way of doing this is to add a free dreamhosters.com sub-domain and set it to mirror your real domain.
