Can I access my website/control panel before my domain transfers?

The temporary URL to access cPanel is contained in your welcome email. Or you can use the "Login to cPanel" links with your Valcato Account, and they will always work. These are located on the Services > My Services page.

To access your website before it's ready to go live, you can tell just your computer to visit the Valcato server whenever you browse to the domain name.

The process involves editing a file on your computer called "hosts". Instructions for accessing the file are located here.

The entry that should be made depends upon which of our powerful servers your account belongs:

CH14A

yourwebsite.com 67.212.166.146

CH14B

yourwebsite.com 216.104.44.82

MK14B

yourwebsite.com 159.253.56.94

Then save the file.

When you'd like to switch to the public version of the site on your computer, you can remove this line from the host file entirely, or comment it out like this:

#yourwebsite.com 216.104.44.82
