    Theoretically you can, by carefully adding the pre-requisites for ISPC, but most likely you will create a lot of problems and/or even loose your existing websites.

    I would strongly advise to start with a clean box using one of the perfect setup guides on this site.

    If you follow the installation instructions, it is working well of course. Then you have to create a new website in ispconfig and copy the content of your website into the newly created website directory.

    You can use any domain as long as it points with a DNS A-Record to your server. If you dont have a domain yet, you can leave hostname empty and then enter the IP adress of your server as domain name.
