    Hello everyone,
    I m a new user and i d like to import a web site from a another server.
    But before redirect the dns i d like to test if my website works.
    For that i need a temporary adress like:

    Is this possible with ISPConfig?

    Thanks you for all.

    One option would be to set the website up as normal on the new server (as if it had the domain already)

    Then on your local machine, add something like this to you hosts file:

    That way you can test if your site works from your local computer by typing in

    Beside this option with the hostfile (which I prefer personally as well as its the most reliable option) you can use the autodomain faeture. See System > server config > web

    Thank you for your reply,
    I m agree but i dont want to take a risk to change the dns before to be sure that the new config is operational.

    I think you misunderstand what I suggested.

    DON'T change the DNS files. Change the hosts file on your local computer. The hosts file is checked before the DNS is checked, so changing the hosts file will make only your computer think that, the DNS has changed.

    I didn't know about the autodomain feature though, I shall look into that also!
