We assign every account an alternative FTP address so you can upload your files before your domain fully resolves to our servers. The alternative FTP address will be immediately available when your account is setup. This is useful for those who want to get started right away whether you are registering a new domain or using an existing domain.
We also assign every account an alternative URL so you can view your site before your domain fully resolves to our servers. For those who will be using an existing domain, you can use the alternative URL to test your web site before pointing your domain to our servers.
You can find the alternative FTP and URL in the "Account Info/Edit" section of the Control Panel
