    Like i've seen other hosting services give a url like

    Any help on this would be great.

    For a quick fix, you can add the IP and domainname to the hosts file of the PC that you are using to access the site.

    Interesting question because It's very interesting to test the website under ispconfig without waiting the DNS prpagation.

    I changed the host file on my computer. www.mydomainename.tld mydomainename.tld
    (IP serveur adress) The domaine name concerned

    Thanks for the tip, it works !


    But sub directory upload with a ftp program with .php files inside give a blank page when I point to the php file url. Is there other direct access tips??

    I was wondering if some sorta Apache ModRewrite might work ?

    I don't think so because then again you'd need proper DNS records.
