My old domain ( is still
working on my old hosting service.
I need a temporary domain ( maybe ?)
to access it before I move my domain name.
My ftp service does not work for the same
reason (name still points to old place).
Do you have an alternative IP address ?

Hello Yuval,

Thank you for your questions about an alternative domain name or IP address to use until your domain is pointed to our Nameservers.

You can use either the server name or server's shared IP address for the host name in your FTP program. To find your server name, simply log into AMP and view your account's technical details.

If you would prefer to use the server's shared IP, log into cPanel and view the stats on the left side of the cPanel home page.

You can then view and test your site through your temporary URL to make sure everything is working correctly before you point your domain.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
