    Hi there,

    I wanted to setup a hosting account that does not belong to a real domain. i tried to do it with subdomain of an axisting domain and it worked fine..setup the hosting account and everything. I want to use this space to do general tasks so i am not interested in the emails or the domain itself.

    How do i access the home page of this domain though?

    i tried the ip of my server followed by the unexistent domain and variations of that according to the path on the file directory onthe server but not luck. Am I missing something ?

    To access the domain by the IP address directly, you would have to make that 'fictional' domain the default domain for the IP address. In the control panel, go to Server - IP Addresses, click on the Hosting column for the IP address assigned to the fictional domain, select the fictional domain, then click the link 'Set as Default'.

    Or if you login to the Plesk control panel, you can use the domain preview function of the Control Panel. This would cause the browser to go to the URL like:


    (you can try this without logging into the CP as well) Just replace 'yourhostdomain.com' and 'fictionaldomain.com' with the appropriate names.
