Viewing files before propagation


Is it possible to view uploaded files through some kind of alias before DNS propagation has taken place? I would like to do some testing prior to switching.


Yes, setup a subdomain off of, ie

and just have the “Web Directory” be the same directory for both.

:cool: Perl / MySQL / HTML+CSS


I’m not quite sure I understand. Are you saying I can setup a subdomain of How do I make the web directory for both be the same?

Set it up as a free “mirror” domain, mirroring the other domain. Or make it fully hosted and set the web directory to be the same. First is better since it doesn’t waste a fully hosted domain.

If you want to be nice to us, remove it when you’re done. The zone file is huge…


Thank you for you help, guys. I will have a go at the mirroring. Oh and don’t worry, I’ll be deleting the subdomain after no more than 3 weeks.
