How to access httpdocs files before setting up a domain?

    Hello all!

    This is my first post in Plesk forums!

    I have created a client (myname) and a domain (myname.com) in Plesk, and uploaded some html files in httdocs. But I really haven't purchased the real myname.com yet.

    How can I access the files in httdocs before setting up the "real" domain name?

    Thanks in advance

    You can set a default domain for an IP address and access it by that IP address (only one default domain per IP address of course).

    Or you can add an entry for the IP address and domain in your computer's hosts file and then access it by the hostname.
