Install a new website before setting the domain?


#1

Hi,

I have a hosting plans with multi website and want to add a new website on it
but with a foreign domain.

So my idea was :

  • Add a new website on my multi website hosting (with my foreign domain name)
  • Put the files of the website in the folder on the OVH server
  • Check if everything is ok from my computer (i set my hosts file to use the OVH server and then check if everything is ok on the website)
  • If everything is ok, ask to the owner of the domain to edit the DNS zone with the new IP to use the new OVH server.

Problem : It looks impossible to install a website without editing the DNS zone first ?

How can i do this ?

Thanks

I found a way. We need to create a DNS zone first. it’s free
