How to view my account without domainname?


#1

Hi everybody,
I am new here and i came to this host after hearing many good things about it.
So I bought an account here to which i would like to move a website which is hosted elsewhere. I first would like to move all the files and databases to here, and when everything is working well, i’d change the nameservers to here as well. My problem is that I don’t find a way to see/test my account here before changing dns.
Someone told me that he locally changes his ‘hostfile’ but I don’t want to change anything on my machine.
I have another host, and he provides a link to my account in this way: http://myaccountname.myotherhost.com
Is this possible too here at Dreamhost?
Thank you for reading,
Pol

Hi again,
